It is hard for me to grasp still but that it has been nine years since writer, playwright, editor, publisher, actor, and friend RICHARD VALLEY passed away.

SADDEST NEWS I VE HAD TO POST HERE-
Oct 12 07 11:37 AM
RICHARD VALLEY, SCARLET STREET EDITOR, has passed away at age 58.
He leaves behind a beloved mother, and his love of over a quarter century,
Since then, many other fanzines have ceased publications, many other friends in the genre have gone on to join him in the great beyond, and many of the issues that were important to him have become political fodder once again.
To me, though, it is a personal loss of a man who was a great true and loyal friend who could irritate the hell out of me and then move one with his extreme generosity and kindness.
I have been lucky to have had four truly great friends in my existence, and though now two have departed, I still cherish them all.
Feel free to share any memories that you have of Richard and SCARLET STREET.
I hope you enjoy the https://scarletthefilmmagazine.wordpress.com/ and share it with your friends.
BIG THANKS to JOHN C STOSKOPF for preserving SCARLET STREET and painstakingly scanning them to post them online for people to enjoy the work of Richard and so many contributors. http://scarletstreetmagazine.blogspot.com/
