A tribute to Rick from his future daughter-in-law

Aly Dixon, Rick’s future daughter-in-law, posted this loving tribute to Rick today:

The Real Reason I’m Here: A Man Who Continues to Inspire

Books & Boos all-day benefit event on June 22, 2013!

Update 2013-06-29: Books & Boos posted on their blog about the event after it was over: A Great Fundraiser for Holly Newstein Hautala

Bracken Macleod posted this on his blog:

Last last March one of the nicest guys I ever met, Rick Hautala, died unexpectedly. His loss has reverberated throughout the literary horror community and we are all saddened. He leaves behind a beautiful wife and sons who need our help. Like most writers, Rick was a man of modest means. That means his family could use our help. The proprietors of Books and Boos bookstore in Colchester, Connecticut are doing what they can and have organized an all day charity benefit for Rick’s family. If you’re in the area, head on down, bid on an auction item, get a book signed by an attending author (sorry, I can’t make it), have some free food, and help some really good people through a hard time. It’ll be worth it!
