Subj: Sagan-tribute solicitation Date: 96-12-20 13:52:20 EST From: 73562.3030@CompuServe.COM (FRAZIER, Kendrick) December 20, 1996 Dear Colleagues: News reports this morning have brought the terrible news that Carl Sagan has died. Our hearts go out to Annie Druyan and the rest of Carl's family. The Skeptical Inquirer: The Magazine for Science and Reason hopes to publish a selection of brief tributes to Carl Sagan in our next issue from friends, colleagues, and those touched by his life and work. This would be the March/April issue, which goes to the printer in mid January and is published around February 1. Additional tributes may appear in the following issue. Sagan was a founding fellow of CSICOP, the publisher of the Skeptical Inquirer, and a long-time supporter of all CSICOP's efforts to promote science, reason, and critical thinking. We hope a number of Carl's colleagues in science, education, and skepticism will submit tributes. I am thinking of something of about 150 to 250 words. You may of course write more if you wish. Please include a one-sentence author note at the end. Also include full address information. Given the time constraints, probably the best way to send it to me is by e-mail. In the subject box, please identify it as "Sagan Tribute for SI." Fax and first-class mail are also acceptable. Please forward this message to colleagues you also would like to have send us tributes. The issue in which these tributes appear will of course be shared with the Sagan family.
