Hal Clement dies

Hal Clement died in his sleep last night. His very first novel, Needle, was serialized in Astounding 10 years before I was born, but I still remember reading and re-reading it as a kid. It was one of those works, along with Have Space Suit, Will Travel and other Heinlein “juveniles” that cemented my love of science fiction. I’m only sorry that when I saw Hal Clement at ConJose last year and TorCon this year, I didn’t get up the gumption to go up to him and tell him so. Now, it’s too late.
