In memorium

Oh Philippa, I missed you. Today I found out you had passed from this realm, because of ovarian cancer.

You were my mentor, a great teacher – and now I know – and a talented SF writer. You gave me a book on feminist SF on my MA graduation day. That knowledge nourished me for years.

Good bye. I couldn’t say goodbye to you. I hope my words wing their way to you.

Thank you thank you thank you so much for being a teacher, a mentor and a role model whom I looked up to.
