  1. I just bought a book by Butler yesterday, Parable of the Talents, on a recommendation by one of the guys at Mysterious Galaxy down in San Diego as well as Elizabeth who was with me at the time. Her work sounds incredibly interesting and thought-provoking and I was looking forward to digging into it after my current Bujold fixation. I’m sorry to hear that she has passed on.

  2. I just barely got done posting about this on my Livejournal, too… they reported it on the local nightly news here, and I’m still just stunned.
