James Gunn (1923-2020)

24 December 2020

We must sadly report that James Gunn died on 23 December at the age of 97. His awards include a Hugo and, for life achievement, the SFWA Grand Master Award.

John Clute writes: "He began writing stories in 1949 and stopped in 2020. He published dozens of books, fiction and nonfiction, that illuminated the field from within. He was an example and a mentor, and he made us believe we shared the long story. We knew he would be there forever, until suddenly he was not."
