R.I.P. Kage Baker
Very sad news today that sf author Kage Baker has passed away. She's best known for her long running Company series of novels and stories about time travel and immortality. She also recently wrote a book for children, The Hotel Under the Sand (2009), and her fantasy novel The House of the Stag (2008) was nominated for a World Fantasy Award. Not long ago she made public her battle with cancer, and it was known she had only a short time. The Green Man review has posted a letter from her sister, and Marty Halpern has posted an appreciation of her. My sympathy goes out to her family and friends.
