Kate Wilhelm

I just found out - belatedly - that Kate Wilhelm died last week. She was a co-founder of Clarion and she helped design the Nebula. (Which I didn't know).

She was as much a mystery writer as a science fiction writer, but I have a huge fondness for her exploration of immortality in "Welcome, Chaos."

Her biggest legacy, though, was as a teacher. I feel as if I have missed out on something as I never had the privilege to meet her.
