Pierce Askegren has died. The author of the Buffy novel Afterimage, as well as novels based on Marvel Comics, Alias, and more, and the original SF trilogy The Inconstant Moon, and short stories in dozens of anthologies.

He was only 51 years old. Cause of death is as yet unknown; he was found dead apparently of natural causes in his apartment. He was a good friend of mine, and a dear colleague, and he'll be missed. I packaged The Inconstant Moon for Ace, and I also was the one who hired him for all of his Marvel Comics-based work. His last story will be published in Time Twisters in January.

I am so sorry for the loss. My family sends our condolences to you, krad, along with all his other friends and family.
Dang...my condolences as well, krad. Definitely ain't easy to lose a friend when they're alive (i.e. go separate ways). Losing a friend to death...

Still...it sounds like for the moment he went peacefully. I guess that's all one can really ask for, other than being with friends and family when one passes on:(
Sorry, krad. I know he'll be missed.
I am very sorry to hear about your friend's passing.
My condolences to his friends and family. 51 is way too young.
I'm truly sorry to hear this. I particularly enjoyed Pierce's "After Image," which I thought did a very good job of capturing the best elements of early BtVS. My condolences to his family and friends.
