Octavia Butler

Steven Barnes is reporting on his blog that science fiction writer and MacArthur Award recipient Octavia Butler has died. I don't know if this report is confirmed, but Barnes wouldn't lie about something like this.

Comments

There's been confirmation by the King County clerk's office.
Sorry, confirmation was from the King County Medical Examiner's Office, not the clerk.
Damn.

Thanks for the info.
I just read this on Gaiman's blog. I'm completely floored.
I met her a few times, and she was a wonderful person. I may post some of my reminiscences.
Aw man. I met her at a convention once; her charisma and presence were staggering. And her fiction was so powerful and fearless; truly amazing stuff. What a terrible loss.
