Icon06 RIP Kate Wilhelm, science fiction great and co-founder of the Clarion Workshop

Kate Wilhelm, author of many of science fiction's seminal books and stories (e.g. Where Late the Sweet Birds Sang), would have been a titan in the field if she had only written; but Wilhelm's prodigious authorly accomplishments are matched by her influence on the generations of writers trained in the Clarion Workshops, which she co-founded with Robin Scott Wilson and her husband Damon Knight.

Kate was the sole surviving member of that original trio, and this week she died, at the age of 89.

Damn, another one gone.

What she's done will reverberate onwards.
