In other news, the SF world is dimmer today with the loss of designer Syd Mead, who has died at age 86. Mead worked on numerous movie projects and is perhaps best known for his genre-defining work in Blade Runner. In this corner of fandom, he is of course known for contributing multiple designs to Turn A Gundam, which celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year. Mead's work was legendary, and it's probably impossible to quantify how many writers, directors, designers, animators, comic artists and game developers have all been influenced by him. His presence will be missed.
