Goodbye, Kage Baker

Kage Baker, fantasy/science fiction writer extraordinaire, died early this morning. There are details here at The Green Man Review.

One of the most memorable books I read this past year was her first foray into writing for children. The Hotel Under the Sand is a strangely marvellous story about a girl washed ashore on an abandoned beach, and the old hotel that rises up out of the dunes and shelters her.

I hope that Kage Baker has come to a safe haven of her own.


  1. SO sad about this; I really haven't read everything of hers yet, and now to think there's no more...

  2. Oh, dear. Well, it makes my having read Hotel Under the Sand a few months back (feel all the more meaningful. I believe you reviewed or recommended or linked it--thanks.
