The news of Colin Harvey's death is hitting me hard. While I never met Colin in person, we corresponded on a regular basis. Colin struck me as one of the good guys of the world. He was very supportive of new writers, both through his anthologies and in his very perceptive reviews. Among the first glowing reviews I ever received for my fiction were from Colin.
Colin also was an amazing SF writer, with a unique voice and style. If you haven't read any of his books and stories, please do.
My heart goes out to his family and to everyone who knew and loved him. And my tears go out for the entire SF genre at having such a talented and up-and-coming author struck down when he was just hitting his prime.
