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.
