Stan Burns: R.I.P.

Stan Burns, Mystery and Science Fiction Reviewer/Critic, Collector, Fan, and amazing Photographer--and friend, passed away Thursday. His sister in law posted that he died at home which is what he wanted--and in no pain.

I'm glad I was able to catch up with him in real time at Bouchercon. He was an amazing photographer, a great critic, and an interesting friend. I met him first, I think in DapaEm, but perhaps at a convention earlier. We had so many wonderful interchanges over the years, mostly recently about his shaving his beard for the first time in years!

Rest peacefully.
