RIP David Hartwell

Last week, Tor editor David G. Hartwell passed away unexpectedly at the age of 74. A longstanding editor in the science fiction and fantasy field, he resided across Lake Champlain in Westport NY.

I’ve already written about David’s death for Barnes and Noble – one of many obituaries and tributes online – but I wanted to note his passing here, given the geographical location, and David’s support for GMS: he attended several of our events, at the Burlington Book Festival and the Vermont SF Writer’s Series, and was often found in Vermont searching through library and other used book sales.

He will be deeply missed.
