It was a shock to learn that Storm Constantine, remembered as a hugely vital and flamboyant presence at UK events, had died on 14 January at the age of only 64. Her debut Wraeththu trilogy beginning with The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit (1987), with its hermaphrodite posthumans, was a dramatically effective excursion into gender-bending sf; other powerful novels followed. In 2003 she founded Immanion Press, publishing her own work and that of authors she admired, in particular Tanith Lee. Storm is much missed.
