    I knew Susan back in the days of Forever Knight fandom. We lost touch, as happens, but I never forgot her. She was a brilliant, witty and generous woman, and her passing is heartbreaking to all who knew and loved her.

    Just an FYI – she was among those listed “In Memoriam” at the opening of the Hugo Awards this year; if we had to lose her, it was nice to know that she had that kind of impact.
