RIP Ned Brooks [1938-2015]

I can't say I even own one zine by Ned, but I had heard of him and read reviews of his zines.

He died when he fell off a roof while making repairs. What a silly way to die!

And there's a photo in this obituary of Ned in a room of his which is so well organised - for an obsessive collector of zines - it makes me sick with envy! My collection is scattered in various piles and boxes. To find a particular issue from five years ago would be a challenge indeed. Shameful!
