More About the Author

For those who haven't heard, Ann "A. C." Crispin died on September 6, 2013. Her legacy will live on. Now, Ann's last completed book, TIME HORSE, has been published for the first time as an ebook for Kindle. It's the story of Danielle Tomasky, who is twelve years old and wants nothing in the world but a horse to ride. She finds a horse that turns out to be something extraordinary, and that takes her on a magnificent adventure back to a time that tests every one of Danni's equestrian skills to their limits.

*****

A. C. Crispin's major original science fiction undertaking is the StarBridge series. These books, now available as Kindle ebooks and in audiobook editions from Audible, center around a school for young diplomats, translators and explorers, both alien and human, located on an asteroid far from Earth. There are seven StarBridge books: StarBridge, Silent Dances, Shadow World, Serpent's Gift, Silent Songs, Voices of Chaos, and Ancestor's World.

A. C. wrote prolifically in many different tie-in universes, and was a master at filling in the histories of beloved TV and movie characters. Over the years, she became the unofficial "Queen of Backstory." Ms. Crispin had a unique talent for writing dialog that captured the essence of those characters. She began publishing in 1983 with the Star Trek novel Yesterday's Son, written in her spare time while working for the US Census Bureau. Shortly thereafter, Tor Books commissioned her to write what is perhaps still her most widely read work, the 1984 novelization of the television miniseries, V, which sold more than a million copies. She went on to collaborate on two more books in the V series, East Coast Crisis with Howard Weinstein, and Death Tide with Deborah Marshall.

For Star Wars, she wrote the bestselling Han Solo Trilogy: The Paradise Snare, The Hutt Gambit, and Rebel Dawn, which tell the story of Han Solo from his early years right up to the moment he walks into the cantina in Star Wars: A New Hope. She wrote three other bestselling Star Trek novels: Time for Yesterday, The Eyes of the Beholders, and Sarek.

Crispin and noted author Andre Norton wrote two Witch World novels together, Gryphon's Eyrie and Songsmith. Ann Crispin and Andre Norton were friends for nearly 30 years. Ms. Norton was the first woman to be declared a Grand Master in the field of science fiction and fantasy by Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA). Andre Norton's passing brought increasing demand for her works, but a legal battle has tied up the rights to her collaborations with Ms. Crispin.

In fact this may be one of the best pieces of science fiction from the last century. Hyperbole? Perhaps. Nonethelesss, I've read the trilogy 3 times now and it's been better and better each time. If you like Star Wars this is a MUST READ! Period.

This set of books was a wonderful to read. The story of Han Solo's life before the events of episode IV explained a lot of unanswered questions. The book takes you from the time before Han went into the Imperial Academy to him walking into Episode IV. It is a great book and I recomend it to anyone that likes Star Wars.

I do not have the tape. I have the book (book club edition that put all three books in one hard back. I remember the ending of Paradise Snare but the other two ran into each other so well - I can't say. I can say that this author did the homework and weaved in cameo appearances, bits and pieces of actions in Daley's books and ultimate result was a smashing success. I stayed up all night with Paradise Snare and (learning I need sleep I did better with the rest). It was so hard to put down and parts I would read and re-read. It was wonderful to come to this book after Phathom Menance and Vector Prime. I could enjoy the characterizations, the story and the universe. I felt like I had come home to SW again. Thanks Crispin - a fantastic job. This will be one well read and well loved book. I am going to get another copy to keep in case this one falls apart.
