R.I.P., Christopher Lee (1922-2015)

Christopher Lee's elegant and intelligent presence looms large in so many of the 'verses I love and study and research and teach: the Gothic, Holmesiana, Tolkieniana, Star Wars, etc. I'm handling the sad news today by imagining his *epic* reunion with his dear friend, Peter Cushing. Two one-of-a-kind gentlemen.

*moment of silence*

Allegedly he had been a member of a unit called the Department of Ungentlemanly Warfare during WWII. With any luck, they'll be declassifying his exploits in the near future.

His biography would make a brilliant film, don't you think?
