Our deepest condolences go out to BVC member David Levine. He lost his wife, Kate Yule, yesterday, October 4, 2016. Kate struggled with cancer for a long time. She was best known for her wit, her laugh, her kindness, and her ability to zero in on the funniest core of an issue.
She will be missed.
Mary Robinette Kowal put into words, better than I can, just how much her family, friends, indeed the entire writing community has lost.
