A.C. Crispin Passes Away

Annpicturquoise2Yesterday was a sad day within the world of Star Wars, especially for those of the Expanded Universe. Author A.C. Crispin who brought us The Han Solo Trilogy; has sadly passed away after her battle with Cancer.

Below, is a farewell message from Crispin that she posted on her page 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.


We at Geek Pride send our condolences to the Crispin family, and I personally, would like to say thank you so much for your incredible contributions to the Star Wars Universe.
