The Dreaded Flonet!
Here is how Flo got her official title, at Clarion, 1984
It’s The Dreaded Flonet!
What Flo's friends say
Flo gave me the impression that she loved everything she did whether
it was writing or attending SF conventions or whether it was something
more "mundane" like her family or her friends.
I always looked forward to us all getting together at
Windycon and hanging out... and getting on the dance floor. Flo was
comfortable to be around with her laid-back attitude, and her wry sense
of humor was delightful.
Looking at her obituary, I couldn't somehow take it in.
How can Flonet be gone? The Dreaded One, the Wonder Woman of Clarion
'84? I was lucky enough to know her as both writer and friend, and
every time we met, it was as if no time at all had passed, there was
no awkwardness or uneasy silence to get past; what a gift that was.
What a gift she was. And no drama from Flo, ever. Just that wry, calm,
funny, unique sensibility, in
Mini-reunion, Gang of 84
