There's no point being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes
Aged 67, of cancer.

The woman who wrote the stories for the episodes "Sand" and "Sarcophagus", and a prolific writer of fantasy, SF, and horror.

Sadly I missed the first announcement of her passing.
"Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics, and you'll get ten different answers, but there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on. Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes…then all of this…all of this…was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars." Commander sinclair, Babylon 5.

Sad news in a sad year in this regard. I found the obituary thread and have placed your post in here for you.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Blake's 7: Trojan Horse (s4 fanfic) - Blake's 7: Through the Needle's Eye (s2 fanfic)

Please forgive the presumption from a relative novice, but, by strange co-incidence, I had picked up my copy of KTD for a re-read during my sojourn in the electronic wilderness and recall this from the introduction:

“The last misunderstanding that has added itself to Kill the Dead is that Michael Keating (Vila in Blake’s Seven) plays the part of Myal Lemyal. Sorry, he doesn’t. I believe that mix-up came about because I also wrote a play for Michael…
…Meanwhile, I had compared Kill the Dead’s Myal to myself. Again, the clue is in the name –my all, etc: A talented idiot.”

At no time could I think of referring to Ms. Lee as an idiot, although I remain in awe of her own talent. I think we must accept her attribution of Myal to herself, even if each of us has a very clear picture of MK playing the role…


Ah that's interesting Sophron. I could never see Villa in the role. But it makes sense that the writer is in a creative relationship with the character as Myall is with Parl ( who is pure Avon in diction)
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.
