BOUND TO WRITE

“..leaving the page of the book carelessly open” – Anne Sexton

Derek Weiler 1968-2009

Posted by Carla Maria Lucchetta on April 13, 2009

I woke up this morning to the tragic news that Derek Weiler had died. We in the Canadian book world know Derek as the excellent editor of Quill & Quire, our publishing industry bible. I’ve met him on a number of occasions, and pitched him stories over the years, but I didn’t know him personally. Many others did and anyway you look at it, it’s a terrible loss, at only 40 years of age.

Here are a couple of tributes with, I’m sure, many more to come.
