Damn! With all my running around for holiday/family stuff, I just learned that Jerry Bails passed away on Wednesday! I've read a few obits and brief remembrances so far, but none that I feel do the man justice. Over the next day or so, I'll be writing a lengthy piece to try to put Jerry's contributions into perspective. I'm sure Roy Thomas will do an excellent tribute to Jerry in Alter Ego, but the blogosphere owes just as much to the man as the fanzines do.
