R.I.P. Brian Aldiss (1925-2017)

I came home yesterday from GenCon Indy 2017, and learned during the day that author Brian Aldiss had died.

Author Brian Aldiss Dies at the Age of 92

I discovered Brian Aldiss's writing in 1967 or so, when I was 15, the first novel of his that I read being Hothouse (1962), and soon started to devour as much of his work as I could find over the years. He was a master of the genre, writing many intriguing books and lots of shorter fiction that was just...tremendous.

His loss is a terrible and sad one for the science fiction, fantasy, and horror community.

Rest In Peace, oh Grandmaster of the SFWA.
