Being one of the probably very few Dutch subscribers to Word Ways magazine (In fact, Karen and Jerry have informed me that I am now the captain of an almost abandoned ship, being the sole remaining Dutch subscriber), I feel that the reader of Word Ways should be notified that Dutch author, mathematician and master of word play Hugo Brandt Corstius, sadly passed away at the age of 78 on February 28th 2014. Furthermore, I feel that you should know more about him than you might know already.
