  1. As sick as he’s been we all knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it any less sad to the millions whose childhoods he shaped. I had the pleasure of his company at a SF con in 1980. We chatted for an hour or so about all kinds of movies, not just horror or SF. I think he was pleasantly surprised to find someone on their early 20s who loved silent films as much as he did. I still love them, and think fondly on that day whenever I watch one.
