    My deepest condolences to those who knew and loved her. As one who has read and loved all her novels, I grieve for her loss. May she rest in peace.

    I’m so very sorry to hear this sad news. I have read her books with great enjoyment ad fascination since the publication of The Garden of Iden. I met her once, too, at a SF convention, and found her a pleasure to talk to, funny and clever and kind. I’m sure her loss will be felt widely.
