Brian Jacques died.




Well, that's the end of my childhood, if it hadn't already ended. The Redwall books were among my favourites as a kid; they got me through many a tough time, including the whole evacuation mess that we had to go through. Whenever I opened a Redwall book, I knew that I was going to fall into it and live among the characters for the next week or so. I could hear the mice, voles, hares, badgers, and stoats all talking in my head, with their distinctive voices and sayings, and I could almost always taste the food from the feasts he gave his characters. I read some of those books a multitude of times, falling in love with the characters again and again--Matthias, Mattimeo, Martin the Warrior, and so many more.

So thank you, good sir, for giving me so much to read. Thank you for reminding me why I loved reading in the first place, and, most importantly, thank you for being an early influence on my writing and being one of the reasons why I wanted to become a writer in the first place. I hope you know just how many children (and adults) you made happy and enthralled with your books. May you live forever through your words.
