FRED PATTEN UPDATE

Our dear friend Fred Patten suffered a stroke last March. I’m happy to say he’s recovering nicely (slowly, but nicely) – and he now has a new webpage which is being updated with his current health status and activities. Fred is the foremost U.S. historian on Japanese anime – and his contributions to my forthcoming book, THE ANIMATED MOVIE GUIDE, were invaluable.Get well Fred – I need you for the revised edition!
