James joins the latest Full of Sith. Bryan Young, Amy Ratcliffe and Anakin Young recorded the podcast at Origins, where they chat about the Aaron Allston memorial. Also includes Bryan’s interview with Nick Gillard at Salt Lake City Comic-Con’s FanX.
Full of Sith’s tribute to Aaron Allston. Podcast host Bryan Young is joined by Michael Stackpole, author Janine Spendlove and publisher Ron Garner to honor Aaron’s memory.
I want you to know that all of you knew Aaron, the real Aaron. Those of us who were lucky enough and honored to log more hours in his company didn’t know him better, we just knew him more. Aaron was the man you meet in his books. He was the man you saw on panels. He was the man who would listen and smile, and listen more.
There’s been a huge outpouring of grief, affection and memories after last night’s horrible news.
In our own corner of fandom, he’s remembered by Brian and Nanci at Tosche Station, Tricia at Fangirl, Peter at Lightsaber Rattling, Mike at Eleven-ThirtyEight, Aaron of Star Wars Bookworms, Mark of Jedi News, Eric at TFN, Andrew Liptak, and EUCantina. There are also brief but touching writeups (and lots of comments) from the 501st and Rebel Legions.
On the professional end, we have words from Del Rey’s Shelly Shapiro, Lucasfilm’s Jen Heddle and Leland Chee and fellow authors Tim Zahn, Troy Denning, Christie Golden, Martha Wells, Helen Keier and many, many more. (You can see some of them in the Twitter list below.)
And finally, there’s been a ton of talk about Aaron on Twitter:
I recommend everyone watch a really horrible movie and/or make a lot of puns this weekend in Aaron’s honor.
