In Memoriam

I was saddened to hear today of the death of Kage Baker, who had been sicker than anyone knew with cancer for several years--years in which she wrote, blessedly, at least 3 wonderful novels and countless brilliant short stories.  Marky Halpern wrote  a detailed and moving appreciation of here martyhalpern.blogspot.com/2010/01/in-company-of-kage-baker.html.

I  hope she died in the knowledge that her fiction was loved and appreciated, and am gladder than I can say that I got to tell her at World Fantasy just how much I'd enjoyed The Anvil of the World, The Empress of Mars, The House of the Stag, and The Hotel Under the Sand.  It seemed to me that her writing was maturing in fascinating ways, and I am angry and bereft that I will not be able to watch her growing from strength to strength--and that I will never get to know her better.
