  1. STUPID cancer.
    I kept hoping for more from this author. Crap.

  2. Oh no. She was a lovely person as well as a fine writer. Her story, “The Garden of Swords,” graced one of the anthologies I edited (The Feathered Edge: Tales of Magic, Love, and Daring). It was an honor to work with her.

    We are all the poorer for her passing. May her memory and the wonderful stories she left us be a blessing.
