Elisabeth Gille ( - 30 Septembre 1996) Information transmise sur la liste sffranco.
Elisabeth Gille est décédée dans la nuit de dimanche à lundi (le 30
septembre donc). Elle était malade depuis
des années, ce qui ne l'a pas empêché d'écrire trois livres, dont une
biographie de sa mère, et de continuer à officier en tant que directrice
littéraire. Elle a dirigé la collection "Présence du futur" de 1976 à 1986
et a traduit de nombreux livres de Science-Fiction.
Patrice Sanahujas (1952 - 19 Février 1996) Information reprise des Dossiers de Phenix 4 consacrés à Henri Vernes.
Dessinateur de talent, Patrice Sanahujas nous a quitté des suites d'une longue et pénible maladie.
Quelques exemples de son travail :
Miller, qui souffrait de sérieux troubles de santé, s'est suicidé peu de temps après le décès de son épouse.
Miller, unanimement salué pour son ouvrage
Un cantique pour Leibowitz
(présence du Futur 46, paru en 1960), et auteur d'une quarantaine de nouvelles
dont certaines ont été traduites en français (Humanité provisoire,
P.d.F 70) travaillait depuis plus de trente ans
sur une "suite" à ce cantique pour Leibowitz,
intitulée selon certains Leibowitz and the Horse Woman.
Il reste un manuscrit de 600 pages, qui pourrait être achevé par
un autre auteur et publié chez Bantam.
Christopher Stork ( - 8 Avril 1995) L'information est déjà ancienne. Je la reprends de Yellow Submarine n. 116, de Septembre 1995.
``Christopher Stork s'est donc éteint le 8 avril, à Uccle, Belgique, à l'age de soixante-dix ans et quelques mois... Né à Liège mais ayant rejoint Paris aprè la guerre, Ovide Jouravleff se fit connaître sous un grand nombre de pseudonymes, parmi lesquels les plus connus sont Stéphane Jourat (pour la littérature générale et son activité de journaliste), Marc Revest et Marc Avril (pour l'espionnage), et Christopher Stork, pour la science-fiction.''

From: dickmann[at]coli.uni-sb.de (Ludwig Dickmann) Newsgroups: rec.arts.sf.written Subject: Michael Ende is dead Date: 29 Aug 1995 09:13:32 +0200 Message-ID: <41uems$fat[at]coli-gate.coli.uni-sb.de> Dear friends, Just heard in the German morning news: Michael Ende passed away tonight in a hospital in Munich at the age of 65. He was suffering from stomach cancer. As most of you probably/hopefully remember, his best-known book is _The Neverending Story_, which was published successfully all over the world, and became #1 in the US bestselling lists, too. It's a beautifully written story about the loss of imagination in our world, and the fight of children to save the land Phantasia from disappearing forever in The Void. The movies (which Michael Ende disliked) don't even come close to the book, as ever so often. Other well-known books are (here, English titles are just guesses): _Momo_: Children and their friends fight against the Grey Men, who steal all time from adults, so they just work, and never play and relax _Der Spiegel im Spiegel_ (_The Mirror in the Mirror_): collection of phantastic short fiction _Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivfuehrer_ (_Jim Knopf and Lucas the Engine Driver_) and _Jim Knopf und die Wilde 13_ (_Jim Knopf and the Wild 13_): juvenile book for kids of all ages, published in 2 volumes for technical reasons. More than 30 years old, but ageless. Another great author lost to us! Best wishes, Ludwig Dickmann

Date: Sun, 10 Sep 1995 17:20:05 +0000 From: pat[at]cooky.demon.co.uk (Pat McMurray) Reply-to: sf-lovers-written[at]Rutgers.Edu Subject: John Brunner's Funeral John Brunner's funeral was held at Taunton Deane Crematorium on 6th September 1995 at 3:30PM. There were approximately 50 attendees. It was a non-denominational service, which opened with a small piece of Chinese opera and had gentle background Jazz throughout. It started with a moving oration from Li Yi. "My dear husband John: "It is to my great sorrow at the loss of you. I still believe you were too tired so you fell to sleep little early. I look forward to see you again day by day. "It is very difficult to be a writer's wife, especially such a famous one like you. I was very sorry that my English was not good enough to help you and [I couldn't] finish the book "Muddle Earth" that you dedicated [to me], but I did what I could. You told people at the Worldcon, that you were very proud of your Chinese wife as she is a very good artist. "You said you would never retire. You gave your life to the world, that is why so many people like you. "You took me to a Chinese restaurant. It was the last dinner I enjoyed with you. How can I forget you said to me - "Li Yi I really want to spend my next life with you." "People all over the world were very sad you left us, but we still enjoy your work and enlights the way that we will follow. "The book about China I put in your hand. It's the Christmas gift you gave me, because we wanted to visit China and my family next year. I wish the book can show you the way to my country, let you see Guang Zhou, the city I was born and my family, so you can understand more about our culture. "My family in China will always remember you. "Ebony and Barcis [the dogs] also miss you, they love you. Barcis's leg is complete OK now. "John, my very good husband, I hope we can see again and enjoy together. I shall miss you all my life." Caroline Mullan had been asked to speak by Li Yi. She first encountered John when she read "Stand on Zanzibar". This was a significant book, and remained so. It had led her to a life in which she would meet John, but the book would have been important even if that had not been true. When she finally met him in person at an SF convention she found him wise and witty in conversation as well as in writing. She then quoted some of what was written by others in the memorial issue of the Intersection newsletter. Caroline finished by thanking Li Yi on behalf of the SF Foundation. Chris Bell spoke next and said that John cared for people, and one evidence of this was his lifelong involvement in CND. Martin Hoare thanked John on behalf of Fans Across the World and the European SF Society - two international SF organisations in which he played a very strong part, especially in bringing fans from East and West Europe together even in pre-Glasnost days. The conventions on Jersey and Intersection itself had their strongly pan-European feeling largely thanks to John. Part of his legacy was to unite the fandom of Europe. Christopher Priest spoke next and said he thought how ironic it was that the French nuclear test explosion had happened only a few hours ago. John was the first writer he met, John had a passionate interest in politics and future. John also had a strong sense of humour to accompany this. John was an awesome intellect - not only was his house full of books but the contents were in his head, an amazingly educated man with an esoteric knowledge. John was a cook, a linguist, a traveller, but most of all a friend. Pauline Morgan spoke, she's met John Brunner a quarter of a century ago, first hearing him speak and then finding copies of his books to read! John has left many good memories, many funny memories - he had a wicked sense of humour. He'll be missed, but never forgotten as long as his books are on her shelves. Heidi Lyshol only knew him at conventions. John was very strongly internationalist a member of the international community of fandom. At Intersection John had asked her what her Foreign Legion ribbon was. This ribbon was for Intersection's foreign agents, those from all over the world who'd worked to bring the world of fandom together. Heidi had promised John a Foreign Legion ribbon of his own, but had never seen him again, so she'd come to bring him his ribbon. Crispin Avon had met Li Yi in China and met John at their wedding reception He thanked John for taking care of Li Yi, and Li Yi for loving John. He was sorry not to have met him more often and not to have known him better. Gerard Black had met John while they were in the RAF at Leighton Buzzard in 1954. John took Gerard under his wing giving him many years of friendship. John was a scintillating man and Gerard gave thanks for his hospitality and kindness. A gentle background of jazz played throughout these tributes. Those present at the service included fannish friends, authors, and admirers past and present: Shev Lao, Chris Bell, Chris & Pauline Morgan, Brian Ameringen & Caroline Mullan, David Barrett, Bernie Evans, Tom Abba, Pat McMurray, Jane Judd, Martin Hoare, Christopher Priest, Heidi Lyshol, Leonid Kourits, Jonathon Cowie, Terry Pratchett, Pat Silver, John Harvey, KIM Campbell, Jo Walton , peter pinto, Dave Langford. Also present were John's friends, family and neighbours, including Japanese friends of Li Yi - Masamitsu Sawa and Aki Sawa, Crispin Avon, Anthony and Margaret Wood, Family - Brother and Brother-In-Law, Charles and Verena Charvet (niece and husband), Neighbours - Daphne Blake, Jenny Norris, Doris Blackmore, Margaret Wall Apologies to anyone omitted. Flowers were received from: Chris and Pauline, Jeremy, FoF, Tony and Marina, Charles and Verena, Shev Lao, Daphne and Seymour Blake, Doris and Colin, Sibyla and John, Barbara, Oscar and Martijn (USSG), Rowena, Li Yi's family, Intersection, Barcis and Ebony. Cards and messages were received from all over the world, including a fax from Arthur C. Clarke in Sri Lanka; "I am very sad to hear of the death of John Brunner, whom I had known for so many years. "He was one of the best, yet most underrated, writers. in particular, he foresaw many ofthe promises and problems of today's wired world - particularly clearly in his novel "The Shockwave Rider". He was the first to foresee the computer virus. "I send my sympathy to Li Yi". A reception was then held at John and Li Yi's home to which all those gathered were invited, and where we had the opportunity to met John and Li Yi's dogs, Ebony and Barcis. Li Yi says thank you to all who've sent flowers and cards - she can't write back to all as she couldn't read all the names.

This post is forwarded from the SFRT on GEnie: Category 39, Topic 4 Message 304 Wed Jun 14, 1995 G.MARTIN15 [GRRM] at 19:02 EDT I have been asked to post the sad news that Roger Zelazny died in St. Vincent's Hospital in Santa Fe early this afternoon, of liver failure brought on by colon/rectal cancer. Jane Lindskold, his beloved friend and companion of this past year, was with him when he died, along with his son Trent, and several of Roger's friends from the SF community. His other children, his son Devon and his daughter Shannon, had sat with him for much of the night. Roger had been fighting the disease with chemotherapy since it was first diagnosed, and the tumor had been in remission for a year, but a few months ago his condition worsened. Roger was an intensely private man, and told only family and a few close friends of his illness. He remained hopeful and optimistic until the last, and was writing right up until a few days ago, and gaming with Jane and his friends from Santa Fe and Albuquerque. He had recently completed an unfinished novel based on a fragment left by Alfred Bester, had done a CD/ROM game with Jane, and was hard at work on a major new science fiction novel, DONNERJACK, which he was extremely excited about. Many of us who knew Roger for a long time, myself included, had never seen him happier or more full of life than he had been during this past year. Roger had expressed the wish that his friends remember him with a party rather than a religious service, and that is indeed what we plan to do. Fred and Joan Saberhagen have kindly donated their home, and a get-together will be held there in the near future. A date and time have not yet been fixed, but I will post details when I have them for those in the New Mexico area. For all the rest of the people who loved Roger and his work, we have been talking about organizing a memorial service/reading/party at one of the major upcoming conventions, most likely the World Fantasy Con in Baltimore. Again, I will post further details when I have them. Roger was a giant, not only one of the finest writers that the genre has ever seen, but the kindlest, gentlest, sweetest man I have ever been fortunate enough to know. We have lost a good one. George R.R. Martin 14 June 1995
