I'm stunned into silence at the moment.

I just heard on Democracy NOW! I just started Parable of the Talents yesterday. Just when I found her, I lost her. It's crazy!!!

Oh, jeez, I had the same reaction when I found out yesterday from Jeremy at Night Shade. Unbelievable.

Sorry - that last anonymous comment was me (I always find anonymous comment rather unsettling).

Wow - I hadn't heard. What a pity. I used to get copies of all the Hugo and Nebula award winners every year. How sad. Lots of talented people passed this week.
