RIP Ned Brooks

This has been a Year of the Jackpot in fandom: Art Widner, Peggy Rae Sapienza, and now Ned Brooks, stalwart fanzine producer and Southern Fandom Press Alliance member for many many years. All are great losses.

We are informed that although he was in his late seventies, he climbed up on his roof to repair it and suffered a fatal fall. A few years ago Max McGee, star of the first Super Bowl, died the same way at a similar age. I am not getting up on any roofs.
