All of us at Tachyon are saddened by the news of the amazing Micheal Blumlein’s death.
Formerly a practicing M.D and faculty member at the University of California
in San Francisco, Michael Blumlein’s modest, yet impactful output
included The Movement Of Mountains (1987), The Healer (2005), THE ROBERTS (2011), and Longer (2019). His novel X,Y (1993) was the basis for the 2004 movie of the same name.

Many of his short stories and essays have been collected in the Readercon Award winner and World Fantasy Award nominated The Brains of Rats (1990), What the Doctor Ordered (2013), All I Ever Dreamed (2018), and Thoreau’s Microscope (2018). Blumlein also wrote the screenplay for the acclaimed short film Decodings (1988).
Our thoughts are with his loved ones.
