R.I.P. Janet Kagan

From Locus: SF writer Janet Kagan, born 1946, died Friday, 29 February 2008, of C.O.P.D. (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), at the age of 63. She was author of popular "Mama Jason" stories published in Asimov's and collected in Mirabile (1991), and of two novels, Star Trek tie Uhura's Song (1985), and Hellspark (1988). Her 1992 novelette "The Nutcracker Coup" won a Hugo Award in 1993.

Damn. In my online correspondence with her, Janet was one of the kindest, most generous people I've known. Her chat room at NaNoWriMo was a must visit every year. This is unwelcome news.
