More sad news from the world of writing. A. C. Crispin, who wrote tie-ins in many worlds including Star Trek, Star Wars and Pirates of the Carribbean, as well as her own original science fiction and fantasy novels, died today according to TOR books, who have posted a very nice obituary.
I'm most familiar with her Star Wars novels, particularly the Han Solo trilogy, but it's been a while since I read them - maybe it's more than time for a re-read, and a look at her other works.
A. C. Crispin was also one of the forces behind Writer Beware, which works to alert writers to various issues and potential scams.
