I write this a week after I discovered that Gardner Dozois passed away. For those of you who never met Gardner or even heard of him, he was the sf editor for most of his tenure at Asimov’s SF Magazine. He won the Hugo for his editing 15 times. He edited a year’s best sf volume that was the definitive volume for decades. He was a fine writer in his own right, publishing some of the best short stories I’ve ever read.

Gardner and I had a pretend rivalry in the mid-1990s . . .
