Barbara Grier, Lesbian Icon Dead at 79

I was going to post some of my favourite Barbara Grier quotes, including a few bits of wisdom I gleaned from her phone calls, but I realized it'd be nearly impossible to read because of all the asterisks "...and you'll do this unless you left your f***ing brain under the g*****ned pillow this morning..." The first time I spoke with her as a potential author, she used more four-letter words in our conversation than I even knew—and that was at 6 in the morning. (And yet she assigned me to one editor because she was fearful that I would scandalize Lila, Naiad's other main editor, since she was a bit older. Of course, when I ended up working with Lila on a later book, Lila introduced me to a number of things, including the Mr. Softie.)

The amazing Victoria Brownworth wrote this lovely obit for LLF: http://www.lambdaliterary.org/features/11/11/in-remembrance-barbara-grier/
