KISS MASK is sad to report the passing of one of our friends, Karen Hatch-Taylor. Karen passed away Monday of complications from cancer in Athol, MA. Karen was co-creator of the 1990's New England Kiss Collector's Network, which produced  fanzines and promoted Kiss fan run expos and conventions. She also co-wrote  "KISS Collectibles Identification And Price Guide" (1993, Avon Books- by Lesniewski, John & Karen). She also presided over Desmond Child's official fanclub in the early 1990's. She can also be seen in Kiss' video for "Turn On The Night" which was shot in Worcester, MA.
