not a good month

I've just seen the news of the death of Brad Linaweaver. This makes the second libertarian science fiction writer to die within the month; J. Neil Schulman died just a few weeks ago. Both of them had won Prometheus Awards: Schulman for Alongside Night and The Rainbow Cadenza, and Linaweaver for Moon of Ice, an alternate history that I thought the best of the three. Both of them were 66; Linaweaver was just two days short of his 67th birthday. It's oddly disturbing to learn of the deaths of men younger than I am; I'm still of an age where I think "so young!"
