Rest in Peace: Petra Mayer

Petra Mayer, NPR book editor and reviewer and long-time promoter of SF, fantasy, and comics, has died suddenly on November 13 as the result of a (probable) pulmonary embolism. She was 46.

In addition to her help promoting SF and Fantasy to a broader audience, she also worked for two years as an audio editor for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, and she made a number of appearances at SF conventions.

Requiescat in pace.
