I just heard that rich brown has died, of complications in surgery. For a few years I was active on the Timebinders email lsit and while I was, I very much appreciated rich's virtual company. I printed a piece by him that was posted to the list, in an issue of Midfanzine. I have been sorry to not have had time to keep up with the list recently, and I am especially sorry now that we have unexpectedly and sorrowfully lost one of our best fan historians. He will be missed, by me among many.
