L. Neil Smith has died

 

L. Neil Smith

Libertarian science fiction writer L. Neil Smith has died; he was 75 and was often mentioned in this blog because he was obviously influenced by Robert Anton Wilson. My piece in New Trajectories 2 was about him. 

You can read the report on File 770.  The family has set up a memorial website.  The Libertarian Futurist Society website has a tribute.   You can read Sean Gabb's reaction.  My interview of El Neil is still available.

I'm glad you were able to shine a light on him and let him know before his Greater Feast. Well done.

Thanks. He did seem to appreciate the attention.
