Paul Haines, one year gone, never forgotten

March 5, 2013

Paul Richard Haines 8 June 1970 – 5 March 2012

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since Paul Haines died. Husband, father, friend, mentor and so much more, and exemplary writer. I still miss him terribly and the Australian scene is not the same without him. My heartfelt best wishes go out to Jules and Isla, as this must be a very hard time for them.

But he will never be forgotten. One of the best ways we can remember Paul Haines is through his work. After his death last year, I put together this list over at Thirteen O’Clock. It details all his work and his incredibly impressive collection of award wins and nominations. In that list are links to buy his collections, and I recommend you do if you haven’t read them. Paul Haines wrote some of the best, most visceral and honest horror and dark fiction ever. You should read it. I’ll probably read some again over the next few days.

Vale, Haines. Always loved, never forgotten.
