James P. Hogan, RIP

2010-07-13

I'm saddened to learn that James P. Hogan, one of my favorite science fiction authors, died yesterday. Although I don't read much SF these days and haven't in years, for a while there I devoured every JPH novel I could get my hands on. I think that the one I liked best was Code of the Lifemaker -- the last scene sticks out in my mind as a tour de force of tongue-in-cheek description. He and I corresponded via email for a few years because I maintained a FanSpace about him at the old version of my monadnock.net website. He was quite an original, heretical person and the world is worse off for having lost him.
