Ann Methe Passes Away

Montreal fan Ann Methe succumbed to cancer October 5. 

Leading Canadian sf writer Robert J. Sawyer saluted her on Twitter as “one of Canada’s great science-fiction convention runners.”

Methe was past chair of Con*Cept, formerly run by the MonSFFA. She won an Aurora Award in 1999 for her work on Con*Cept and was nominated two other times.

She also worked on the 2009 Montreal Worldcon, Anticipation, as a hotel liaison.

She is survived by her husband, artist Jean-Pierre Normand.
