I've just learned of Robert Forward's passing. I'm sure all of us who have enjoyed his writing over the years feel a deep sense of loss.

That's terrible, he was one of my favorites.

I had no idea he was 70, I thought he was a lot younger.

Sorry to read about Forward's death. He was always my example when someone asked the difference between "hard" science fiction and "soft" sf. No sugar coating from that guy. And he told a good story too.
