Harry Turner

I don't know if this is old news, but I haven't seen it anywhere else. We've just had an email from Philip Turner, Harry's son, to let us know that Harry died on Sunday 11 January. He was 88.

Philip suggested that we -- and no doubt you -- would be interested to see the tribute page he is putting together.

Harry was one of my very favourite fan artists.

I'm sorry to learn that Harry is no longer with us. I have several issues of his fanzine, Zenith, from the early fourties and even then he had a very elegant drawing style (work which is even more impressive when you consider that it must have been drawn straight to stencil). I imagine he was the first British fanartist of any note and by all reports a pretty nice bloke. Vale Harry.

Yeah, heard about a week ago. Martin and I are working on a tribute in the next Critical Wave.
