Thomas Disch, RIP

Thomas Disch is dead.  Sigh.

I’ll make another stab at On Wings of Song.

He wasn’t a nice guy, from reports.  He had little patience, tended to make enemies of friends, and I wish I’d met him.  One of the better comments from the Making Light discussion group:

> I intensely disliked some of his stories, which I suspect would have pleased him.

Indeed I *hated* his short story Slaves, which is probably why I re-read it half a dozen times until I finally got it.  I suspect that many politicians would find Displaying the Flag disgusting.
