Coincidentally, very sad news tonight. Cliff Doerksen, who edited the Pink Nun story– my first for The Chicago Reader— died recently. He was just 47. News got around today. Cliff had moved on from The Reader by the time I published there again, so that was my only encounter with him, but he did a lot to make that story shine.
RIP, Cliff. From the testimonials appearing now, it’s clear I missed a lot by not knowing you better.
