"I am sad to report that my long-time friend John Keel passed on July 03 at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City after a several month stint in a nursing home near his Upper West Side apartment. Phyllis Benjamin, The International Fortean Organization (INFO)"
I knew he was ill, but somehow one never expected this to happen. John Keel was probably the world's greatest living fortean; a throwback to the glory-days of forteana forty years ago, before it got tainted with the brush of crass commercialism. If only because of The Mothman Prophecies and Disneyland of the Gods I always wanted to meet him. And now I never shall.
Rest in Peace Mr Keel.
