SAD NEWS: N-L Contributor Stan Kelly-Bootle
Rod Kareem writes:

I'm a longtime reader of the Nabokov listserv, but have never written. I
just feel compelled to share my sadness at Stan's passing. It has literally
stopped me in my tracks. I was just headed out the door and I saw the
message on my phone. Now I'm sitting at my computer feeling unpleasant. I
never met him but I have an email folder dedicated specifically to his
fantastically erudite missives. I exchanged a couple emails with him
expressing my appreciation, and, despite my being a stranger on a different
continent, he responded with kindness and his patented panache.

Joseph Aisenberg writes:

It really is a shock. I exchanged a couple emails with him, he was funny
and amazingly brilliant. I always made sure to read his contributions to
the list.

Victor Fet writes:

It is very sad news.
I was fortunate to have met Stan three times in London, for hours of
intense, generous intellectual merriment.
He was one of the brightest.
We will miss Stan greatly.
