We've lost another one

Yesterday, Frederik Pohl passed away.  He was a very big influence on me.  From the time I first learned to put a subject and a predicate together, I've been writing stories...even then, mostly science fiction.  But it was after reading Gateway that I decided that I really wanted to be a science fiction author.  I loved all of the Heechee novels, and there was something in the telling of those stories that had a huge impact on me.
Like, love, or hate my fiction, Frederik Pohl is a big reason why my writing is out there for others to read. So, I thank him, and say goodbye.  He will be missed.
