I hadn't heard of a lot of those names, but Micheal O'Hare died to? Damn, I loved him in B5.

RIP

They mention Caroline John (Liz Shaw) but omit Mary Tamm (Romana I)

No, Tamm is listed. Right above John actually.

Boris Strugatsky, Russian science fiction writer, usually with his older brother Arkady, who died in 1991. Noon Universe series.

I enjoyed some of their books (in English translation). My understanding is their writing basically died with Arkady, meaning I didn't even discover them until they were over.

Lost?  Who misplaced them?

Thankfully everyone in the self-published steam punk community survived.

I know that when I think of sci fi and fantasy the first actors that come to mind are Andy Griffith and Ernest Borgnine.

Me too, though memories of Dick Tufeld's voice give me more smiles and chuckles.

`we really lost a lot of creative folks this past year who, at least in my mind- enriched all of our lives.
Many were bot on that list . This is one glaring example
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0362682/  '
I wont be mad about my sub not being greened- but this man was an awesome actor for so many years, and he just fades away into the night ? NO .

Jonathan Hardy , thanks and may you rest in peace .

He probably has "dust" in his room too.

So glad not to see George R R Martin on that list.

Had no idea Johnathan Frid died, on the other hand, I had no idea that Ray Bradbury was still alive to die.

Actual Farking: I know that when I think of sci fi and fantasy the first actors that come to mind are Andy Griffith and Ernest Borgnine.


Borgnine rocked it in The Black Hole

They couldn't find any better reference for Charles During than The Muppets? Anyway, very, very glad to see Sir Patrick Caldwell-Moore on the list. Some of you amateur astronomers may recognize him from the Caldwell Catalog as well as the BBC's The Sky at Night

Shut your mouth. Borgnine rocked in everything.

Especially Airwolf, right?

Shelly Moldoff.

If they can't remember Moldoff they have no business pretending they have anything to do with comics.

In terms of fantasy and science fiction work? Sure. Durning was a great, great actor but in genre terms his best work was in Muppet Movie (he's also good in The Final Countdown. The less said of Solarbabies or Mrs. Claus the better). Interestingly, he was in both Dick Tracy and Brenda Starr.

Didn't realize Caroline John had died. Some of the finest legs in all of Doctor Who.

Honorable mention should go to Tony Scott
 
2013-01-01 01:10:24 PM
Silly Humans. People do not get lost. They F*CKING DIE.

Accept that death happens or forever be considered weak of mind.

Ernest Borgnine, Did voices for Spongebob Squarepants

I sure will miss Abe Vigoda.

Nothing at all wrong with The Muppets, watch your tongue, er, hands....

Sir Patrick Caldwell-Moore RIP. He shook the hand of both Orville Wright and Neil Armstrong. Seriously wow.

Who talks like that? Besides you?

Don't forget Dianna Wynne Jones.

She was and is my favorite author. She brought us Howl's Moving Castle and Deep Secret and Hexwood and on and on. And all y'all should totally go read her books.

Worf.

Off-topic: i have limited time, want to get back into SF (literary or hard SF, not much fantasy interest). Which is the best periodical? F&SF? Asmiov's? Analog?

/has a sad about Harrison and the DW companions. Jo had fine gams indeed! I liked Tamm better than Romana II, but maybe just because I was 12 and she was far hotter.
/Will miss Bradbury, but his best work was probably in the 1950s. Later stuff just not as good, but he produced more wonderful stuff before 1970 than ten other first-rate writers together.
