Sad news from Arkham House

From http://www.arkhamhouse.com/

"April R. Derleth

President and C.E.O. of Arkham House

Daughter of August Derleth

August 9, 1954 - March 21, 2011

R.I.P."

While we had several long back and forth conversations via fax (and I got the impression she really hated the phone), I only met April Derleth one time - when she was a Special Guest of World Fantasy.

She was a fun person who really cared about the books she was publishing, and the health and development of her company. I'm sad to learn she's gone.

Unnervingly young, too. Had she been ill?
