James Gunn (1923-2020)
24 December 2020
We must sadly report that James Gunn died on 23 December at the age
of 97. His awards include a Hugo and, for
life achievement, the SFWA
Grand Master Award.
John Clute writes: "He began
writing stories in 1949 and stopped in 2020. He published dozens of
books, fiction and nonfiction, that illuminated the field from
within. He was an example and a mentor, and he made us believe we
shared the long story. We knew he would be there forever,
until suddenly he was not."
