John Christopher 1922-2012 reported the passing of John Christopher today.  This saddens me greatly as I was a tremendous fan of the “Tripods” young adult sci-fi series many years ago. I learned critical life skills like how to evade capture, blow up alien war machines and the best way to infiltrate an alien city masquerading as a slave. And, most  importantly, the value of observing your alien master patiently until a weak point appears and then beat the alien scum to death with your bare hands.


Rest in peace sir.
