    Default In Memoriam

    It is with great sadness that I mention the passing of Sir Terry Prachett, author of The Carpet People, The Dark Side of the Sun, the Discworld series, and other assorted works (including Good Omens with Neil Gaiman).

    Relevant articles include this one.

    Thank you, Sir Terry, for blessing us with wit and wisdom and headology, and may we have the common sense to use it.

    Sincerely,

    Melchior, the Geddon Knight

    The first baseball manager I can remember, since he led the first team I ever followed: the 'Ya Gotta Believe" Mets of '73. That he was one of the greatest (if not the best all-time) catchers came to my attention a little later. One of my favorite baseball guys.

    George Clayton Johnson, who holds the distinction of writing what turned out to be the first Star Trek episode ever to air, died on Tuesday, December 22 at the age of 86. Johnson's Star Trek: The Original Series episode was, of course, "The Map Trap." Johnson wrote two other proposed TOS stories, but neither was realized. In addition to his Trek work, Johnson wrote stories or scripts for dozens of movies and television shows, including the original Ocean's 11, The Twilight Zone (several seminal episodes, including "Kick the Can"), Kung Fu and Logan's Run (with both the movie and ensuing series based on the novel of the same name he'd co-written with William F. Nolan). Additionally, he wrote many essays, poems, short stories and more, was a welcome presence for decades at conventions, and was proud to be a hippie. Speaking in 2003 to the Archive of American Television, Johnson said the following. "I want to be remembered as a person who early on in his life took control of his life and set goals. When people gave me a lined paper, I wrote the other way. When people expect some certain behavior from me, I will frustrate their expectations."
