among other things. I'm sad.

I was just musing last week that he was still alive, as far as I knew he was spry and probably in his nineties (and he was 93, turns out).

My mind always turns to demographics, in this case the science fiction field. Did you know (I ask myself) that Frederik Pohl outlived C.M. Kornbluth* by 55 years? And Pohl was older than Kornbluth by three and a half years, too.

* Pohl and Kornbluth were frequent collaborators, most famously on The Space Merchants.
