6253RIP: Guy Tucker
- Dec 17, 2006I'm sadded to tell everyone I recieved a phone call two days ago
from former G-Con sucurity and friend John Jocko that kaiju
historian and friend Guy Mariner Tucker passed away last November
Guy died of heart failure.
My deepest sympathy goes to his mother and rest of his family.
Guy was one of the best historians of daikaiju fandom. He met and
assciatied with many of the Japanese film industry. such as Haruo
Nakajima, Kenji Sahara and such.
Guy was also the author of the Great "Age of the Gods" book about
his involvement in daikaiju eiga.
His book is sitting proudly on my shelf of my collection.
He also was mainly involved with the guests from Japan at G-Con in
the mid and late 1990's and was Editor of the late Kaiju-Fan.
Guy was a great friend to me especailly during those great days. He
among others kept the genre alive.
Guy.....you will be missed. :-(
Sayronara..and RIP: Guy Mariner Tucker.
