Posted on behalf of Brett Colley:
I am writing to share with you the very sad news that my Stepfather, Mike Dennis passed away earlier today (14th December 2019).

Mike had suffered a few strokes over the years and more recently had been in particularly poor health.

Despite all of this, I know he had been an avid AR collector and commentator and I know he posted here many times, as well as writing his own analysis of some of the works of AR.

He and my Mum (his Widow) have lived with me for twenty years, so our shelves are full of AR material! I might need some help appreciating what we actually have, so look out for me posting! In fact our last house was situated in the same road as the Witches Cottage, which I understand features in the Swallows and Amazons book.

I asked my Mum and she was OK with me sharing this sad news on the Tarboard forum and with your members.

As time moves on and when things are a little easier for us all, I will read some of Mikes comments and analysis, including actually reading some of the AR books, which I’ve never myself done!
