I’ve heard that A.J. Budrys died today at the age of 77.
I didn’t know him well, but our encounters were always amiable.Â (The last time I remember seeing him was about ten years ago, when he was Guest of Honor at Readercon, and I seem to recall him clapping me on the shoulder and calling me “a good kid” or somesuch.)
Regardless of our friendship, he was a great friend to F&SF, publishing many stories in the magazine (including the shorter version of ROGUE MOON).Â He was also our primary book reviewer from the Sept. 1975 issue through the Jan. 1993 issue.
Rest in peace, Ayjay.
