2011 In Memoriam

As the year draws to a close, we often reflect on events of the past twelve months, and the latest issue of the Science Fiction Book Club catalog includes a listing of genre authors lost this year. It was a surprising list, as it includes both authors I was not familiar as well as one's whose work I had enjoyed but did not know that had passed on. Those featured were:

Leslie Esdalie Banks
Sara Douglass
Brian Jacques
Joel Rosenberg
Joanna Russ
William Sleator
Diana Wynne Jones

A noticeable omission, perhaps she died after press-time, is the recent death of Anne McCaffrey last month.
