Kage Baker 1952-2010

We here at Tachyon and SF in SF were deeply saddened to hear of Kage's passing, due to a rare form of cancer, this past Sunday morning. The community has been weighing in with tributes, accolades for her writing, and expressions of love, good will, and the desire to have changed this history to one with a better outcome. There's no words to express, really, the unfairness of the situation, but as author Charles de Lint wrote, "I have spent many happy hours in her imagination." We have enjoyed happy hours in Kage's company, and at several SF in SF events, and hope you have too. Life can be pretty damn unfair at times. This is one of those times.

She will be greatly missed, and our condolences to her family and tribe. Go read her books. Your life will be the richer for them.

For more information, please view the page set up at at SFWA . I also would like to point readers to Marty Halpern's lovely tribute, and the info her sister has given permission to post at Green Man Review.
