The rap on David Hartwell was that his taste was too good for the marketplace. Thirty years ago he was publishing all sorts of great stuff at Timescape, but the suits shut it down because it was not making enough money. (According to some reports, enough money to overcome the bath they’d taken on a John Irving book.) He moved over to Tor and continued to give us excellent sf. He created NYRSF, a continuing source of valuable sf criticism, which he had already turned over to Kevin Maroney. He was a good friend. Making Light remembers him.
