The Fred Patten News Page now offers the latest information about Fred Patten, a highly respected fan of science fiction, anime and manga. He is the author of the Stone Bridge Press title Watching Anime, Reading Manga: 25 Years of Essays and Reviews, a collection providing an incisive history of how anime came to America.
Earlier this year Fred suffered a stroke, and so the news page has been created to update friends and fans about his condition and activities. You can read about how to contact him and also how to help out. Also, his entire collection of sci-fi and anime/manga materials have been donated to UC Riverside, which you can read about (with free subscription) in the Riverside Press-Enterprise.
