Tanith Lee, 1947-2015

This has been a very bad year for deaths in SF&F, and the year is not even half over.

My all-out favorite Lee is Kill the Dead: something about the combo of lush spookiness and mordant humor. Parl Dro is one of my favorite characters ever.

Sad, isn't it? The Silver Metal Lover is my favourite. I seem to remember also a terrific YA novel from her - a long while back now - involving alternate worlds, Summer Princes and carnivorous sheep, which utterly terrorised me.

Too many grand old women of SFF we're losing lately. This has me brooding all over again about Diana Wynne Jones, taken too young too.
