Charles N. Brown, R.I.P.

I've been subscribing to Locus, the trade journal of the science-fiction field, since 1982. Its editor in chief, Charles N. Brown, passed away yesterday, on his way home from Readercon 20. He was 72. We ran into each other for the final time on Saturday afternoon, I think, in the Green Room.

He was on his scooter, and called out, "Hi, Rob." I replied, "Hi, Charles," then added, "You look well." He replied with a cheery, "As well as can be expected," or words to that effect, and was off.

I'm sorry to see him go.
