So long, Jack :(

As many of you know, Jack Williamson, world-renowned science fiction author and Grand Master, passed away on Friday November 10, 2006 in Portales, New Mexico at the age of 98.
There are a couple nice articles about him in the Portales News-Tribune: 'Williamson considered one of science fiction's greats', and 'Local writer remembered'.
There's a nice audio segment on NPR: 'Science Fiction Writer Jack Williamson Dies at 98'.
There are some nice photos from Nov 16th, 17th Memorial Service at the Eastern New Mexico University, and their news release: 'World-Renowned Science Fiction Writer Jack Williamson Passes Away'.
See also the SFWA obituary, and the
Albuquerque Tribune obituary.

So long, Jack. We'll miss you.
