My goddess. I knew Suzanne was ill, but I had no idea how ill she was.  I received an email from her a few months ago and thought she would be fine. I am sick about this. What a bright light; what a loss.

ETA: I checked my email and she wrote me one month before she died almost to the day. I remember bugging her years ago to write something outside of fandom -- not that I think her fandom writing wasn't fabulous, but I wanted to see her name on a real book, and see what she would do with her wonderful talent.  I could see her writing some Victorian suspense fantasy with beautiful tragic men in love with immortals who could never make them happy. But she was a scholar in RL and while we in fandom will always be able to enjoy her writing, the non-fandom lost a potential star.
