Silvana (silvaubrey) RIP

So far I only read his collaborative works (the fantasy anthologies) with GRRM. I guess reading the ASoIAF novellas would not be the same without him.

He has a short story, "Unstoppable" in this this month's Fantasy & Science Fiction, May/June, which seems to have been is main venue the last couple of years. Coincidentally read it last night.

Damn.. I've read almost all of the best of the year anthologies that he edited. RIP

Aphelia (aphelia88) | 32 comments I was so sad to hear of his passing. Dozois was the name I trusted most for SF anthologies: if he was editor, I was sure it would be a good read. I have a few of the Years Best but I really liked the Space Opera one he did. I didn't know he wrote himself! Thank you for the obit links.
