sad news: Thomas M. Disch
I was sorry to hear we lost Thomas M. Disch, an award-winning science fiction author and poet over the weekend. Thomas won the Hugo Award for best related book in 1999, and he had two other Hugo nominations and nine Nebula Award nominations to his credit, plus one win of the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, a Rhysling Award, and two Seiun Awards, among others. According to Locus Online Thomas committed suicide on July 4.
