Rest in peace, Bruce Durocher

I learned from Making Light that Bruce Durocher has died.

I didn’t know him well; we mostly spoke over LiveJournal. He was local to me, and he had a love of books that didn’t find a large audience but were good nonetheless. It was on his recommendation that I read Bucket Nut this year. He was also kind about my books.

I knew he was sick and had been for a long time. I’m sorry that he didn’t get more of this world, and that this world won’t get any more from him.

My condolences to everyone who knew and loved him.

(I hate to be tangential on a post about someone's dying, but I'm glad people are still reading Bucket Nut...)

It was on Bruce's recommendation, so that's all to his credit. Hopefully, a few more folks will give it a try.

Thank you. We both greatly enjoyed The Way Into Chaos and its successors; thank you for sending him copies. I don't think he was being kind about your books; he was being accurate.

I know he greatly enjoyed his conversations with you. I wish we'd both have had many more conversations with him.

Re: Bruce E. Durocher Ii
It was my pleasure to have known him, even a little.
