With immense sadness we share the news of Alain's passing on December 11, 2020.
He was beloved and cherished by so many!
We wish all his friends to be aware of his passing, so they may have time to grieve, and to celebrate his life.
“…An imperfect text is better than
no text at all, and the editor [of archives]
has to accept the difficulties inherent in
the genre as well as his own limitations.”
