Ed Bryant died in his sleep last night (Locus obituary). He will be remembered as a great writer and a much loved member of fandom. To many of us, he was also a mentor. He selflessly gave his time to developing writers in groups like the Northern Colorado Writers Workshop, which he formed in 1972 and remained active in right up to the end.
Thank you for your guidance and encouragement. We have a meeting tomorrow and it is hard to believe you won’t be there.
