I know it's been a few weeks since my last post - the last one was the night before Eric arrived, actually. It's not that I haven't had plenty to talk about - it's just that I've been up to my eyeballs in con- and work-related stuff.

I promise a full post about what I've been up to (and Eric's visit) later this week. I only wanted to mention, because I know that some of you will be familiar with who I'm talking about, that I just read on [livejournal.com profile] esprix's LJ that [livejournal.com profile] minotaurs died tonight, of a heart attack.

I met [livejournal.com profile] minotaurs a little under three years ago, at the Worldcon in Los Angeles. I'd posted that I was coming down for it, and he decided that even though he wasn't going to the con, he wanted to make the four-hour drive up from San Diego just to have dinner with me. We had a most enjoyable evening (despite the pouring rain).

I remember, upon returning, mentioning our meeting to [livejournal.com profile] ozreison. This was the first inkling I'd had that he was famous in the slash community - her reaction was, roughly, "OMG, you know [livejournal.com profile] minotaurs???" My response was to shrug and say, "Yeah, why?" I think I knew that he was a slash writer before I met him, but he'd never mentioned before that he was so well known in that community.

I hadn't seen him since 2006, and even though I still read his LJ, I don't think I really commented all that often, so I can't say that we were close at all. But I enjoyed his company on that one rainy night in L.A., and I'm sorry that we won't be able to do it again someday.

RIP, Stuart.
