Chronicles is very sad to report that our friend and longtime contributor Tom Landess has passed away of a sudden illness.  A true man of letters, Dr. Landess wrote (and ghostwrote) hundreds of books and articles, as well as poetry.  He was a student and friend of many of the Twelve Southerners and a brilliant storyteller.  He will be missed tremendously.  May God grant eternal rest to his soul, and peace and comfort to his loving wife.

Look for a full obituary and reflections on his life in future issues of Chronicles, as well as several of his yet-to-be published pieces.
