Engineer and SF author Gene Wolf has passed away at the age of 88. He designed the machine that makes Pringles. He also wrote extremely high-brow SF of a sort which apparently rewarded the intelligent, knowledgeable, widely-read reader adept at teasing double and triple meanings, sifting through scenes and unreliable narrators and chasing down reality through mere hints.
In other words, I didn’t read much of his stuff, and what I did read (The Fifth Head of Cerberus), probably went over my head at a very high velocity. But that’s on me.
Spare none of the rites. One of the highest has passed this day.
