Rest in peace, John H. Jenkins

This is John’s son, writing with bad news.

Early Tuesday morning, February 28, 2023, John H. Jenkins passed away in his sleep, aged 62. We don’t know the exact cause of death, but he had been in the hospital on Sunday for severe chest pain, for which they were unable to find a cause.

Thank you to anyone and everyone who supported him over the years. I will be keeping this website up and maintained for as long as I am able. If you wish to honor his memory in some tangible way, please leave a comment below, or simply pick up an Asimov book and start reading.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear this. I’ve used this site many times over the years, it’s a real tribute to your father’s passion. My condolences.

  2. Sorry to hear of your fathers passing. I was listening to an audiobook and was curious about the pronunciation of the name “Noÿs” in the The End of Eternity so did a web search and found this site.

    I’m inclined now to read the rest of your fathers reviews of Asimov works.
