    This is sad news indeed. Lucius’s work has been a favorite of mine since I first discovered him in F&SF. “The End of Life as We Know It” made me a fan forever. Even when I took a 15 year break in subscribing from the big 3 sf magazines, I still checked newsstands for his stories and would buy single issues because of his work. Lucius, rest in peace.
