" In this universe the night was falling; the shadows were lengthening towards an east that would not know another dawn. But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning lingered; and along the path he once had followed, Man would one day go again"

Arthur C. Clarke Against the Fall of Night

World Fantasy Award Winner Patricia A. McKillip Has Passed Away

I first encountered McKillip's work when I found Heir of Sea and Water, the second volume of the Riddlemaster of Hed trilogy in a drug store while attending an archaeological field school in Elk Point, Alberta. The Riddlemaster series now ranks right up there with Tolken's Hobbit/LOTR books for me, and McKillip the only fantasy writer whose works I always bought as soon as they came out.

My post on her novel Fool's Run appears here:

  1. I remember her fantasy fondly. I just reviewed Moon-Flash in her honor. I doubt it's her best work but it's one of only a few SF ones so I gave it a go.

    Miss your comments on the site. I hope everything is okay.
