Hal Clement (Harry Stubbs) has left us.

Raise a glass, gentlefolk. Raise a glass.

Hal was a great guy. Remained a fan his whole life, which is very cool. When I found out what kind of writer I was (this is a online quiz) I was Hal Clement, Style Monkey.

Laura, let's hold off, have a toast to Hal on Saturday night. I want to be there.

JK --

I suspect that there will be many toasts, all weekend...

After being turned off SF as a teen by Certain Writers, Hal's NEEDLE brought me back. I had the good fortune to be able to tell him that a few years ago.

He blushed.

He was the only person ever who could make me think that some centipedes might be okay.

When I go to cons, I choose which panels to go to not by subject but by the panelists.

Mr. Clement was one of my must sees.

Fewer panels for me now. My thoughts are with his family.

As a nine-year-old boy, who loved reading all sorts of books, I read my very first sci-fi novel—Needle. It opened a whole new world for me (in fact, hundreds of new worlds). Thanks to this wonderful sf-mystery, I came to know and love Azimov, Heinlein, Clarke, and so many others. Even after all these years, however, I still clearly remember Needle. (We always seem to vividly recall that first time, don't we?) Thanks, Hal, for a delightful lifetime of fun and discovery. You'll not be forgotten, for I know there are many others like me who will continue to enjoy your stories.
