Re: Josepha Sherman has passed away

That's spooky - I'm reading Vulcan's Heart at the moment.

I've not been a fan of her other Vulcan books - the trilogy was certainly a slog, but I'm quite enjoying this one.

RIP Josepha.

Re: Josepha Sherman has passed away

I just saw this on David Mack's Facebook. Very sad news and a terrible loss. I've only read a couple of her books but I loved them. Rest peace, Josepha.

I'm very sorry to hear about this. I haven't gotten a chance to read any of her and Susan Shwartz books yet, but they are on my list.

Very sad to hear it. Jo was more than just a colleague. She was a friend of twenty-five years, whom I first met at an convention way back in 1987. She will be missed.

Sad to learn about Josepha's passing. I always considered the 'Vulcan' series to have a unique insight into Spock's character.
