FK Fan Arletta A., deceased

I just saw on Greer's journal that Arletta has passed away. A friend of hers shared the news on ForKni-L earlier on Tuesday.

I remember Arletta from the email lists and loops in '97 or so, when I still counted Light Cousin among my subsidiary affiliations. Long ago and far away. I remember that she once wrote an FK fanfic in the form of a script and convinced her drama group — I don't remember whether this was community theater, or a club, or a class — to perform it. I remember that she shared David Eddings's conviction about not reading in the genre in which one writes; she's the only fan I've ever known to take that approach.

Goodby, Arletta.
