Well, crap!

As some of you might know, I'm a huge Kage Baker fan. I think she is one of the most under-rated spec fic writers we have. Her Company series is magnificent in its scope, imagination and wit.

Well, it turns out Ms Baker is very good at keeping secrets. The news has just broken that she's fighting a grim battle with cancer. You can read more about that here. Please ... spare a thought or a prayer for this truly unique writer. And if you've not read her work, give yourself a treat and begin with the first book of the Company series, In the Garden of Iden.

So not the way to start a new year ...
