It’s been a while since I’ve read a Mike Resnick novel, but I devoured quite a few of them as a teenager. I recall them as exciting adventures, and for a while, he was one of my top picks. I’ve always meant to come back to him, and maybe the time for that is now. More importantly, I understand that he was a kind individual who saw it as his duty to mentor up and coming science fiction authors.
Mr. Resnick died last week from aggressive lymphoma; if one is so inclined, there’s a GoFundMe to help defray the cost of the medical bills incurred. (Or at the very least, pick up some of his books.)
