Brian Jacques dies at age 71

I'm sitting here in shock, for while I haven't thought of his books in awhile, they were an integral part of my childhood. I checked them out over and over again from the library, until my parents bought me my own copies. I took my small plastic animals outside and made them adventure like the creatures from Redwall. And I know I couldn't have been the only one to develop some sort of crush on Mattimeo :p

Working in a geeky bookstore, I realized how many people grew up on Lord of the Rings, and that was one series that I could never get into (until after the movies lol), because I had such a hard time visualizing it. But the Redwall series, I'm realizing, that was my LotR, that was the world that kicked my ass and imagination into gear and convinced me that anything was possible.

It's frustrating when it's something sudden that takes a person away from others, because you can't rely on the trusty, "Well, at least they're not suffering anymore." I am sad and I am pissed and this is one of the few times I wish I was planning on kids, so that I could introduce them to his world. But instead I'll buy copies and donate them to a women's and children's shelter in town, and further his legacy that way.
