thekristeen (Weyrwoman Lysera of Fort Weyr) has gone between.

I met Kris Spooner sometime in the mid-eighties, at a Pern convention. She and I had met through a 10th Pass Pern writing club called Fort Weyr. I was more of a reader in Forten than a writer, but I always loved reading Kris' stories about Lysera, who was a rather reserved woman with a back problem that made walking and standing painful for her. I always imagine actress Julianna Margulies playing Lysera in the Forten movie.

Kris had a number of serious medical problems, all of which she bore with admirable goodwill and cheerfulness, at least online.

I will miss her very much.

How very, very sad -- Kris was always such a joy to interact with back on the old GEnie boards, and she was a skilled writer to boot. She was definitely one of the good ones.

Greg--She sure was. And hey, it's good to see you! I didn't know you were on LiveJournal. :)


I am so sad to hear this. This is a sad day for Pern fandom. :(

I'm so sorry to hear this. She was a inspiration to me as a teenager writing fan fic, and I loved reading her style. She will be missed. :(
