Bob passed away Thursday. The folks coming to pick him up to go to a con found him dead on his couch with a sci-fi novel in his hand. (As a fan, can you imagine a better way to go?) Details at SFWA. I met Bob at Midsouthcon last year. Hell of a nice guy. He's gonna be missed.
*UPDATE* An unofficial wake will be held tomorrow night, Sunday the 25th, at Fahy's in the French Quarter, 540 Burgundy. 9pm 'til.
