RIP Mike Glicksohn

Robert Sawyer reports, "R.I.P., Mike Glicksohn. Mike passed away at 5:30 a.m. ET this morning in Toronto after suffering a stroke, following a long battle with cancer. He was a Hugo Award-winning fanzine publisher, and one of the best people I ever knew; I named the entire human race "Gliksins" in his honour in my novel HOMINIDS."

Mike was one of the good guys in fandom. We weren't close friends, but he always had a smile and pleasant greeting.

ETA My most recent photo of Mike, from 2007, on Facebook.

I'm so glad I got this shot. I asked if I could take his picture, and he said no. But I cajoled him into it. And he and his wife, the next in the series.

A motto of mine is becoming a mantra: I only regret the pictures I don't take.
