Kage Baker, 1952-2010

It wasn't a surprise, but it was still a shock: SF and Fantasy writer Kage Baker died early this morning at home in the company of her sister Kathleen. SFWA has the news, and remembrances and obituaries have begun to appear on various sites.

I said what I wanted to say about Kage and her work last week; I only wish I had said it sooner.

No. I wish a hell of a lot of other things, primary among them that Kage was still healthy and with us. But we have her novels and stories, and that will have to be enough.

Farewell, Kage Baker. You did a hell of a good job while you were here.
