RIP: author Jeanne Robinson

Author Jeanne Robinson died on May 30 after a long battle with a particularly nasty and virulent form of biliary cancer. Jeanne was undergoing treatment but toward the end the cancer was not responded to treatment.

Robinson, the wife of Spider Robinson, co-authored the Stardance novels and won the Nebula and Hugo Awards in 1978 for the original novella, “Stardance.” Robinson has also been a dancer and choreographer. At the time of her death, she was working with James Sposto and David Gerrold to bring Stardance to the screen.

Jeanne Robinson was born in 1948 and passed at the age of 62.
