Have just learned that the Nivens and Gary Westfahl, amongst others, have been evacuated from their homes. Some Bay Area fans have set up a web site to keep track of latest news about So-Cal folks and their current status. See http://www.hematite.com/socal-fires/index.html

Cheryl, as someone with friends and relatives in the path of that fire, I thank you for the link. I hope no one else is hurt.

Wow, that link wasn't what I thought it was, but it was still pretty interesting.

Glad you found it useful, Neal. A lot of the people on that list are friends of mine because they are well-known So-Cal fans. But judging from the SFWA directory there are a lot of writers in the area as well.
I'm certainly very glad I'm not faced with potential evacuation and loss of my home. Give me earthquakes any day - they don't destroy your book collection.
