A.C. Crispin, prolific and much loved science fiction novelist and creator of the Starbridge series as well as a number of Star Trek books, and anti-scamming activist, co-founder of the Science Fiction Writers of America’s Writer Beware campaign, has passed away this morning after a prolonged battle with cancer.

She had posted farewells on the internet a few days ago:

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.
