Evanston-based science-fiction writer, editor, and teacher Algis Budrys passed away on Monday. The author of such books as Rogue Moon and Who?, Budrys wasn't a household name, but his friendship with and encouragement, critique, and mentoring of numerous sci-fi writers—many of whom have written deeply appreciative eulogies to the man—is perhaps his greatest legacy.
