The Big Seal

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 2:56 PM

On Alice K. Turner, fiction editor at Playboy  magazine
for two decades, who reportedly died on Jan. 17:

"To have Alice publish a science-fiction story
of yours was a big seal of approval."

— Robert Silverberg, according to Turner's
    obituary by Emily Langer in yesterday evening's
    online Washington Post

Also from that obituary:

"Ms. Turner wrote a nonfiction and scholarly
book of her own, 'The History of Hell' (1993).
She professed that she did not believe in the
afterlife and described her book as a 'real
history of an imaginary place.' The erudite
work encompassed theology, art, literature
and history."
