It’s with some sadness that I note the passing of Kris Hembury, a young Brisbane writer with whome I’ve shared a table of Contents in the past. Like my relationships with almost all of the SF world, I only knew Kris peripherally at a personal level via email and the numerous posts he made through the Visions mailing list, but the enthusiasm, excitement and just plain joy he possessed was always readily apparent in every message, and reading posts by his friends gives an indication of just how special he was to those who knew him. My sadness and condolences go out to his family and friends.
