    I am glad she was remembered in the Hugo Awards in memoriam I have a few
    of her books and enjoyed reading them and I will raise a glass of wine in
    memory of her.
    Perhaps we could have a award for the best FK fan fiction in her name to
    remember her by and do this once a year perhaps on her birthday a
    suggestion from someone who enjoyed her work.

"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I
thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the
terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?
So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the
universe". Marcus, B5

The recipient there who talked about Susan was Tara O'Shea. She was in FK
fandom and on the list way back in the beginning. She also wrote a little here,
then in HL, and dozens more. If you've been in any of several dozen fandoms,
you probably knew or encountered Tara, just like being in small fandoms would
mean someone almost inevitably encountered Susan.

Actually, watching the ustream recording
(http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/16783348), one of the winners of the
Best Related Works category gave Susan a special thank you and said some
very kind words. Not related to FK, of course, but it was so very nice
to see that other fans outside our FK community appreciated her as much
as we did.

That clip is just shy of the 2hr30min mark, for those interested in
seeing what was said. Make sure you have kleenex handy.
