It is now being reported (volunteertv.com)that Andre Norton has passed away. While she was never one of my absolute favorites, her books were always ones that I enjoyed and often found to be quite thought provoking.
As an aside, are there really 30+ Witch World books? Man, I'm behind.
RIP Ms. Norton

CNN (cnn.com) is reporting that one of my all time favorite writers, Stanislaw Lem, has passed away. I was probably 10 or 11 when I found a copy of Solaris in my dad's library and was absolutely blown away by it.
