I've gone and missed both their birthdays. I can't believe I didn't remember. Some fan I am. It's even more ridiculous considering yesterday was Moore's Centenary. I wish I could blame something like work or exciting things (there is an exciting thing coming up, but I'm not going to talk about it until it's ready), but really, the least I could've done was a tip of the glass.
To make up for it, I'll point to more observant fans: James Maliszewski, Shane Mangus, Lagomorph, and John O'Neil all posted little tributes. A perfect example of how criminally under-appreciated Moore is: where's the Official C. L. Moore Forums? Where's Jirel's atrocious adaptation that makes a hash of her origin and motivations? Where's Northwest Smith's beautifully illustrated and sometimes problematic comic series? She deserves so much more than this.
