Sad news: Locus publisher, editor and co-founder Charles N. Brown died peacefully in his sleep, on his way home from Readercon. Brown co-founded the magazine as a one-sheet fanzine in 1968, and enjoyed editing it so much, he decided to extend it beyond its planned one-year lifespan. Since then, the magazine has won 29 Hugo Awards, and Brown was nominated for "Best Fan Writer." Brown also reviewed books for Asimov's, wrote the summations for Terry Carr's "Best Of The Year" anthologies, and wrote for many magazines and newspapers. He will be missed. [Locus]
