I wanted to put out a quick note to people reading my blog who know Hugh Daniel. I just got word that he was found dead in his home this afternoon. All I know right now is that it looks like natural causes.
I feel like I’ve known Hugh forever. He was a neat, hyper-intelligent guy with a distinct worldview that was both fun to learn from and poke hatpins in. Dinner with him was always a fascinating, multi-faceted discussion.
The world’s a bit less interesting tonight.
Update June 5: I’ve been told two services are going to be held, one in California, one in Ann Arbor. I’ll post details as soon as I get them.
Also, a nice piece with a pointer to Hugh’s FGoH tribute at Windycon 38 via File 770.
