John M. Ford, 1957-2006

Lots of people around the internet are mourning the death of Mike Ford (the news was first at Making Light, as far as I know, and people are posting there; it is a good thing). I'm one of them. I'm glad I got to go to Ask Dr. Mike a few times, glad I got to meet him, glad I got to the point where I could wander over and talk to him at a con comfortably or vice versa. And so very glad of the books and stories, of course. Always.

I'm hoping at some point I can see something useful to do for people who were closer to him than I was, but until then, I'm going to make rosemary buns and curl up on the couch with Heat of Fusion.

He will be missed. No, no passive voice: we will miss him. A lot.
