Awful, wretched news

Of all the lousy news to have pop up on my computer... Octavia Butler has died. According to Steven Barnes, she suffered a stroke and was discovered by neighbors outside of her home. She was a singular talent, and I'm sad to say I only met her very briefly, at Aggiecon 20, before I'd ever read any of her stuff and learned what a great writer she was. I'd always wanted to interview her, but now I'll never get the chance. Damn.
