Top 10 Posts for April 2019

People mourning the death of Vonda McIntyre followed social media links from all over to read File 770’s reminiscence and Tom Whitmore’s official obituary (with its exceptional, full account of her career.)

  1. @Andrew: The Asimov post from 2014 focused on Gene Wolfe and was linked in Wolfe’s obituary post (“Gene Wolfe (1931-2019)”). So I understand why it got a lot of traffic in April.

    What’s odd is that it ranked ahead of the Gene Wolfe obituary post.

  2. If I’d thought about it for a second I would have figured it out – ah well.

  3. The Asimov post got linked in TechCrunch’s Wolfe coverage (and maybe others’), giving it an extra boost.
