United In Death - January 13

The Clog Almanac Friday Mashup of people who died on a January 13:

1983 -
Dallas McCord "Mack" Reynolds - U.S. sci-fi writer
1941 -
James Joyce - Irish novelist
1929 -
Wyatt Earp - Legendary U.S. marshall
1864 -
Stephen C. Foster - American composer
1599 -
Edmund Spenser - English poet

At the tender age of 19 in 1978, I had the priveledge of sharing several long evening conversations with Mack Reynolds at his home in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. He would be tickled to see his name listed with Joyce and Earp and Spenser.
