Moving Forward

So what happens next?

In the coming months, I will be shifting focus on Jack Ketchum (dot) net, to be more of an archive of information about his works.

Any future publications, be they short stories in anthologies, or new editions of previously published works will also be announced as well.

Additionally, there may be items that we are looking for, in order to create a comprehensive physical archive as well. I will make announcements about these in the future (after we figure out what we are missing).

You, the fans, have always been very important to Dallas. He was extremely grateful for all of you. It has been an honor  to have been a part of his life for 18 years.

Please join me in keeping his legacy alive. Recommend his books to friends. Fill in the holes in your Jack Ketchum library.

And please, don’t hesitate to send me an email. My address can be found on the Contact Page.

Charitable Giving

Hi everyone,

As can be expected, it’s been a rough couple of days.

First, and foremost, I want to thank everyone for the love, support, and memories of Dallas that you have emailed me, tweeted, posted to Facebook, etc. He touched a lot of people’s lives, and the outpouring of emotion has been incredible to witness. I am extremely grateful.

A number of people have inquired about making charitable donations in Dallas’s name. Dallas regularly gave money to no-kill animal shelters (particularly those for cats, but any will do). If you wish to make a donation to a no-kill shelter in your area (or elsewhere) in the name of Dallas Mayr (or Jack Ketchum), I know Dallas would be grateful.

Thank you, again, everyone, for everything. More updates to come.

-Kev (the Webmaster)

 

All Things Must Pass

Dallas Mayr, aka “Jack Ketchum” passed away this morning.

It was 2002 – we were both younger.

I first met Dallas in 1999, at World Horror in Atlanta.  James A. Moore was a friend of mine, and handed me a copy of The Girl Next Door, and told me I needed to read it.

I couldn’t put it down.

Dallas was a guest, and I had him sign my copy. I also blew the rest of my funds on other Jack Ketchum books. I told him “you and I are going to get along great!”

By fortunate coincidence, a few months later, I found out he was looking for a webmaster.  I offered my services, and we’d been working together for almost 20 years now.

Dallas was a kind man, and our relationship went from boss/employee to friendship to adopted family.

I am truly grateful and honored that he let me be a part of his life, and I will miss him more than I know how to say.

Godspeed, Dallas.

I love you.

-Kev.

“This is fiction that does far more than ‘entertain,’ and it goes far beyond what we expect when we read ‘horror.’ No haunted houses here, no pitchfork-wielding devils with horns on their heads. The only monsters are the very worst kind: humans.”
