We will temporarily suspend all activities at TIAH Blog due to the tragic passing of Chris Barat.
Far more than merely a member of our little Blogging community, Chris was one of my closest and very best friends since 1987, and one with whom I shared a great many wonderful experiences over that time. It's hard to imagine the particular types of fun our group of fandom and blogging friends has had, and not think of him. He will be so very, very missed.
We’ll be back soon – hopefully, with a more fitting tribute to Chris.
In the meantime keep his spirit alive by going to his Blog, and reading any number of the detailed research posts he put up…
…Or peruse same in this Blog and other Blogs he frequented. (A list of those Blogs displays at his own Blog.)
…Or, read a comic, watch some animation… and imagine the great fun of discussing it with him afterward!
My memories of such times will be with me forever!
To Chris and his devoted wife, Nicky… Thank you for all of it!
