a great editor

And I will add mine to the list of grievings at the death of David G. Hartwell. How many novels and anthologies that he edited have I read; how much did I trust his tastes; how much did I enjoy his speaking at conventions, and his company on the occasions that we interacted. And he founded and long-edited the only critical magazine on SF that I still read. He was a great one, certainly the best and most seriously influential editor in the SF field since the death of Terry Carr, and possibly much longer than that.
