You're welcome Slade. I guess my friend, Angie Jourgensen, and her husband Al won't be having a very Merry Christmas this year now. It's never a good time to lose someone dear to you, but losing someone you love at this time of year is particularly hard.

I did, too. Well, his early work. I didn't care for The Magic Cottage, which was more fantasy than horror. I only read a couple more after that. But his early novels were great fun.

Also RIP: Bobby Smith from The Spinners.

H.R. Giger is such a loss. His vision will forever transcend the alien imagery and art design. The movies themselves will live on with his talents immortalized.

So glad there are hotels and various museums that showcase his creative genius. Now to seek them out and explore them when time permits.
