Wonder's Child

It's Jack Williamson's 100th birthday today.

I quote his niece Betty: "In his honor, I suggest we all pause sometime today with a glass filled with the liquid of our choice (Jack would probably either have a gin and tonic or a tall buttermilk...) and drink a toast to Wonder's Child. What an amazing century . . . "

For a literary appreciation of Jack's journey, take a look at this article by John Clute.

What a very nice man he was.

Of course I didn't know him as well as you did, but years ago he came to Milehicon a couple of times (or more?), and I think I saw him at a Worldcon or two as well. He was always friendly and warm, remembered my name, asked about my life and writing.
