The Science Fiction Writing of A.C. Crispin

Science fiction author A.C. Crispin passed away this week after a battle with cancer.  Born Ann Carol Crispin, A.C. became a beloved author of novelizations of popular sci-fi franchises and of her own speculative fiction creations.

I fondly remember reading her V novels and her Star Trek tale "Yesterday's Son," a sequel to the classic episode "All Our Yesterdays." She was also a prolific collaborator with such noteworthy fellow writers as Andre Norton and Kathleen O'Malley, among others.
