David G. Hartwell, a long time Con*Cept (and recently Can-Con) guest is on his deathbed. Some sites have erroneously reported that he has passed away, although those have been due to a misunderstanding. However, there is no hope for recovery and it is only a matter of time. His panels on both contemporary SF ongoings and those discussing SF history have always been highlights of cons. He will be sadly missed. I will have to read one of his annual ‘best of’ collections.

  1. He certainly was a very likeable and approachable figure at any convention. I collected all the editions of his annual Best SF of the year anthologies, although only read about half of them. They were good collections and a lot more focused than Gardner Dozois’ sprawling anthologies.
