    She was an amazing woman. I got to see her in action in 2003 (and it seems like an eyeblink ago!) and am grateful for the experience. I am glad to have gotten to spend the time around her in Pittsburgh that I did, in her house that was walled with books, and always smelled vaguely of sweet spices.
    She is missed. 🙁

    I am so very sorry to hear this news. She will be held in the hearts of the many students she touched. RIP Ann.

    I am very saddened — Ann was a true advocate for genre fiction and a great writer and critic. I know that both Parsec and Alpha will feel this loss greatly. She was a passionate lover of life, and I will remember her fondly.

    I _thought_ PARSEC planned to honor Ann’s contributions with some type annual award, but here we are, nearing the 2nd anniversary of her death, and I find nothing indicating anything was done in memory of her substantial contributions to PARSEC and her mentoring of budding writers. (I knew Ann before PARSEC; quite a woman, quite a lady.)

    Unfortunately, we at the blog are not in charge of PARSEC; all we do is help with the workshop. However, I think Ann would like to know that her cookies are still spoken of and that she is much missed.
