Sad news: Will Bagley

Hello everyone. I regret to report the news of the death of Will Bagley, the wildly prolific and talented historian of Utah and the West. Will won the Caughey prize for Blood of the Prophets, just one of his many books. Will was always generous and helpful to me and my students, and he was a wonderful editor and collaborator on Playing with Shadows, part of the Kingdom in the West series he edited for Arthur Clark. And he was a hilarious and warm friend. I will miss the little man with the big voice and the big brain.
