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.
