Um.

More than that is hard to say just now. I think it will be a bit before I am coherent.

There is a post on Making Light.

Please pass the word to the people who loved him, liked his work, and so on. There will certainly be some sort of memorial service, but it won't be for at least a couple of weeks. Late October is the best I can give right now. More when I have it.

Hug your dear ones.


Oh, my dear. I am so sorry for your loss, and for all of ours. He was a source of light and magic and words of ensorcellment.

Sincere condolences...

Laura Jean & David Schroth

I'm so sorry for your loss. The world is poorer.

I am very sorry for your loss.

I am terribly, terribly sorry.

Elise, I'm so sorry to hear this. Many hugs.

I am so very, very sorry. It hurts me too, though I only knew him through his books and on the Internet. He was strong enough to touch me from that far away, and now I'm crying with you.

Elise, left you an email. Obviously, I'm at a substantial distance now (and so, so sorry I wasn't down the street as usual when this happened: it makes my heart hurt not to have been there for you), but if there is anything at all I can do, please tell me. Anything: I can figure out how to do whatever it is.

Love you so, so much. Sending the tightest psychic hug I can muster.

Oh, I'm so sorry. His "Winter Solstice Camelot Station" is the first poem I read consciously as an sf poem. I owe him a lot for that.

my heart goes out to you and all those who love him. Take care in the coming days. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh, Elise, my heart bleeds. He was such a fine mind, such a mordant wit, a gentleman and a scholar and there are always too few of those around.

What a hole in the heart. Sorry seems so inadequate.

Love and comfort to you.

Oh no, I can't believe it. I've loved his writing since I was in high school, when I always thought I was smart enough to see the ending and he always surprised me. That was, and has been, such a gift! I'm so sorry, for you of course but also for the rest of us. What a loss.

I found out about it this morning as I was showing my class "Making Light" as an example of a blog--made it hard to keep teaching. I knew him mainly through WisCon, and looked forward to seeing him there. The loss of him is heavy for us all, even those who can't consider ourselves close friends. My thoughts go out to you--
