Aaron Allston: 1960-2014

We have just learned that Aaron Allston passed away yesterday from heart failure. Allston was known primarily for his excellent tie-in fiction, particularly within the Star Wars Expanded Universe. He wrote many of the X-Wing novels, along with tales in the New Jedi Order, the Legacy of the Force series and Fate of the Jedi series.

Author Timothy Zhan said this on Facebook in regard to Allston’s passing: “[Aaron Allston] was a wonderful author, a devastating punster, an erudite teacher, and — most of all — a wonderful friend.”

Our thoughts go with his friends and family. Allston will be missed.
