Charles Brown of Locus, R.I.P.

Sad news to report to those of you who read the science-fiction trade magazine Locus: its co-founder and editor, Charles Brown has died at the age of 72.

I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with him on a few occasions back in the 1990s when I was in the book trade, and he was always friendly and very committed to great books and stories. The world of science fiction will really miss him.

The Problem w/kidz theze Dayz: DNX-SubSuperStratic Niner Irving (as published in LyfeStYle'n'VoguE/TimElifemegazine2362-BCRE)

I'm hurdling nine-thousand feet per second through walls of sonic distortion with the world's oldest rap superstar. We're heading toward a massive wall of what appears to be asparagus.

"Ya like what ya like?" he asks as I snap back to consensus reality.

Oh yeah, I like.

So do lots of people. 36 million cans of DNX-SubSuperStratic Niner Irving sold last month.

Some like the old skool beats. Some like the hallucinations.

But the fact is, everyone wants them some Irving.

Q: What's it like to be a 121 year old icon?
