Fungi was one of the first CoC books I ever bought and one I will ever remember. I never knew you, yet somehow I feel I've lost a friend. So sorry to see you go, Doc, let the Old Ones guide you onward.

Thanks for everything, Doc.

What can one say that has not already been said ?
In my (limited but treasured) correspondence with him, I always found him encouraging, engaging and inspiring.
My deepest condolences to the family.

Prayers and condolences for his family for sure.

The deepest loss is to his family and friends, no doubt, but the whole world of Lovecraft is the poorer for his passing. RIP, Doc.

I have publicly released the video chat we did with Doc just before and after his interview in Yog Radio #34, so everyone can see him as he was only a couple of months ago.

My thoughts and condolences are with Docs family and friends.
MRP will hopefully continue with the full support of the CoC community as Keith's last creation.
Doc passing on Friday 13th I am sure he would have loved the irony!
You will be sadly missed.

Thank you from me and from all of us for the video. It gives us all a chance to see him again. That's very kind of you, and further proof that you are, as always, a gentleman and a scholar.

Keith came to France years ago, and stayed at our house for a few days of fun and talk and wining and dining and general madness, with Mark Rein Hagen.
I had admired his work for years and was so glad to have him "all for me" for a few days. I must find the time and the will to write about those days. Now, I just can't. I feel something has been ripped inside me.

But I know that my memories from my teenage years will be intrinsically linked to reading and playing through the scenarios in Arkham Unveiled and Return to Dunwich and that the excitement that I felt knowing that he was back writing for my favourite game system brought me some of that youthful feeling back!
I'm sure that many others feel the same and would like to join everyone in wishing my condolences to his family and friends

Being an artist for many years and having seen literally thousands of fonts and examples of typography professionally... he's the only guy i know that when i heard his name saw it in a font in the same way that you cant hear 'Coke' without seeing the curly 'C'.
So, with fondness, I salute you Mr. Herber and will tonight toast a glass of mead to your memory.
Keith Herber - Writer, creator, Columbus/Beaumarcais (Scriptorium)in 12pt..
God bless you and your family at this time.
