Definitely a bad month for SF...

It appears that one of the masters of the cosy catastrophe has died. Richard Cowper (the pen name of John Middleton Murray Jr) wrote some of my favourite books of the early 80s, including Profundis and the White Bird of Kinship trilogy.

April 2002 has seen the deaths of Cowper, Knight, Effinger and Lafferty. Four writers whose works will live long after them.
