Sad news, folks…

It looks like Jay Lake lost his long battle with cancer, just a few days short of his 50th birthday.

Jay will be terribly missed by many. I will forever remember how he took the time at Worldcon 2012 (ChiCon) to tell us how the Hugo ceremony worked, or how he touched me with his revealing interview about how he his loved ones are affected by his cancer. Or how he was an inspiration for everyone with his strength, courage and determination. Or how he provided so much enjoyment through his writing. But most of all, I’ll never forget the man, or the sentiment echoed by a room full of people at Worldcon 2013 (LonestarCon) when they shouted in unison, “We love you, Jay.”
