Real World RIP: Janet Kagan

According to James Nicoll and other sources, Janet Kagan has died from COPD. While she wrote quite a number of short stories and two original novels, Hellspark and Mirabile, she may be best known worldwide for a Star Trek book she authored called Uhura's Song. This book ranks very highly amongst the hundreds of Trek books written, one of only a handful that is mentioned regularly as a worthy book regardless of its spinoff nature; one of the other oft-mentioned books in that category is The Final Reflection by John M. Ford (also, alas, no longer with us).

A moment of silence for yet another author who will write no more.
