This is sad news indeed.

My Facebook feed this afternoon was filled with kind words for the late Katherine Ludwig.

Katherine was the co-founder and inaugural editor for Metal Maniacs magazine, which launched in 1989.

She was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma this past summer.

Katherine leaves behind a son, and thousands of writers who read her prose and were inspired to follow in her path.

I never met Katherine. At least I don’t remember ever meeting her.

But I will say Metal Maniacs was the leading publication about the heavy stuff for years and years.

Cancer takes another great. Fuck that disease.
