I've known Charlie (I've always called him Charlie in person)since I joined the sf community in the easrly 80s but I've only come to be friends with him in the past ten years. He could be annoying and abrasive but I and many other people cared a great deal about it.
I'll miss our dinners and lunches and just hanging out.
He was a fixture and a very important part of the field for decades. I know that Locus will continue--he and his close friends and colleagues made sure of this several years ago.
Charles N. Brown, 1937-2009
