Matthew Cheney on muses and ghosts

Matthew Cheney has returned to blogging after taking a break following the sudden death of his father (I offer my sincere sympathy to him on his loss). Cheney's new column for Strange Horizons deals with both his father's death and their mutual love of movies. The essay is extremely moving and observant, especially as Matthew notes how movies were one of the few things in life which brought the two of them together. The essay's ending will leave you with a massive lump in your throat and an overwhelming desire to immediately call your own father.
