George Scithers 1929-2010

April 20, 2010

I am very sad to see that editor George Scithers passed away yesterday after a massive heart attack two days before.

He rejected one of my first submitted stories a thousand years ago or so at Asimov’s — but in personal, kindly and handwritten fashion.   His book with Darrell Schweitzer,  On Writing Science Fiction — which I read after the rejection —  is still on my shelf.
