I have no idea what that means, but I know that if it were not for Knight's ORBIT series or original anthologies, we might not have Gene Wolfe - we might not, that is, have the Gene Wolfe we know & love; I am sure that his talent would have blossomed somewhere, but it might not have been in the genre of SF/F. And, of course, Let us then observe a moment of silence and, for those of us who do such things, prayer. Damon Knight is dead. --A Very Depressed Blattid --
