Star Wars Author A.C. Crispin Passes Away

By: Dominic Jones

It's a sad day for Star Wars fans, specifically fans of the Expanded Universe.  A.C. Crispin, author of The Han Solo Trilogy of novels, has passed away after a battle with cancer.  We would like to send our condolences to Ms. Crispin's familly and thank her for her contributions to the Star Wars Universe.  

Below is the goodbye message Ms. Crispin's posted on her facebook page just prior to her passing:

I've been hesitant to make this post, but it's time. I want to thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. I fear my condition is deteriorating. I am doing the best I can to be positive but I probably don't have an awful lot of time left. I want you all to know that I am receiving excellent care and am surrounded by family and friends.

I wish all aspiring writers the will to finish and a good contract. Please continue to monitor Writer Beware and be careful who you sign with. Victoria Strauss and Richard White are there to help.

I've asked Michael to collect and read me your messages. As I don't know how things will proceed, I don't know if I'll have the strength to post on Facebook again.
