I was very saddened to read that Eugie Foster passed away on Saturday. For a time, she was my editor at The Fix, a short lived publication that focused on reviewing the short fiction market. She also contributed a fascinating article on creative procrastination and Kanji to this blog many years ago. Though we lived in the same town for some time, we never met in person, not even when I attended Dragon*Con in 2008. Nevertheless, as an editor, she helped me refine my review writing and I can credit my limited success to her tutelage. My sympathies are with her husband Matthew as he copes with her loss after her long and courageous battle with cancer.
