Our friend, colleague and African SFF writer and supporter, Nick Wood, has passed away. 

We at the ASFS send his family our deep love and condolences as we all mourn the passing of someone who selflessly strove to promote, support and represent Africa on the world stage with dignity and enthusiasm, and with his smile that could light up the galaxy.

Nick Wood (1961-2023)
