Sara Douglass, 1957-2011

Beloved science fiction and fantasy author Sara Douglass passed away yesterday, September 26th. Douglass had been diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and wrote eloquently about her struggle with the treatment and the stigma behind it on her personal blog. She was 54 at the time of her passing.

Born Sara Warneke, she wrote under the name Sara Douglass from 1995 until her death. Hailing from Penola, Australia, Sara’s major works include BattleAxe, Starman, Enchanter, The Wayfarer Redemption series and the Crucible trilogy.

A talent lost far too young, Sara will be missed very much by her readers and the science fiction community.
