Madeleine L’Engle, 1918-2007

When I think back on it, Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time probably was the one book the set me on this life-long path of loving speculative fiction. Even if I didn’t call it that at the time. She and H.G. Wells. And from my love of sci-fi and fantasy came my love of computers and gaming, both of which very strongly shaped the path my life has taken.

Madeleine L’Engle died this week, of natural causes. She was 88. Her books will live on, hopefully forever.

Her website holds a list of her books.

CNN reports on her death. A good read for the impatient and the curious.

The NY Times reports on her life in Madeleine L’Engle, Children’s Writer, Is Dead. This is a much better read for anyone who loved her books.
