Jennifer Swift

I was shocked to learn yesterday from catching up with Ansible that Jennifer Swift had died three months ago. She was a lovely woman whom I'd met at cons over the years, and always had lively and friendly conversations with. Jennifer was a science fiction fan, author, and critic (warmly remembered here and here) a bioethicist, a journalist, and an Anglican. For my occasional crass vehemences she had - literally - the patience of a saint. It's a small consolation that my last interaction with her was a hug. Belated condolences to those who knew her better.
