December 8, 2017, Update from Holly:
It’s official- Rick’s papers are funded and will be housed at the Maine State Library. A big thanks to Mark “Marky-Mark” Steensland for his generous contribution. Rick is smiling and pshawing somewhere.
Hello friends. You will see that I have a created a GoFundMe for the Rick Hautala Papers. Rick was an accomplished Maine Horror/Suspense author—winning the Bram Stoker award with Joe R. Landsdale. Rick was a good friend of Steve and I. I was his personal archivist and have been processing and organizing his personal papers since 2007 The papers will be transferred to the Maine State Library Archives December 31, 2017. Although I have been processing Rick’s papers pro-bono since 2007 around my many other projects, the cost of rehousing materials are expensive. Share with anyone you feel may be interested in supporting. Thanks so much!
