RIP Jeanne (the Stardancer) Robinson
Our thoughts and prayers are with Spider Robinson and his family as they mourn the passing of Spider's wife and collaborator, Jeanne. If you were reading science fiction in the late 1970s and early 1980s, you will remember Jeanne Robinson as the co-author of the Stardance books. Stardance marked the first time I read such a clear description of how modern dance might evolve in zero-gravity...it was a uniquely amazing setting. It also won both the Hugo and the Nebula awards.
We'll miss your bright star, Jeanne,
