The dedication to THE FIFTH HEAD OF CERBERUS reads:

                               To Damon Knight, who
                                one well-remembered
          June evening in 1966 grew me from a bean.

I have no idea what that means, but I know that if it
were not for Knight's ORBIT series or original anthologies, 
we might not have Gene Wolfe - we might not, that is, have 
the Gene Wolfe we know & love; I am sure that his talent
would have blossomed somewhere, but it might not have been
in the genre of SF/F. And, of course, 

Let us then observe a moment of silence and, for those of
us who do such things, prayer. 

Damon Knight is dead.
