Had been posting about this in the random thoughts thread but writer David Farland, author of ‘The Courtship of Princess Leia’ and short stories in the ‘Tales of’ series as well as many other works for Star Wars and beyond, has now died. He is continuing to affect Star Wars today; for example, a reference to The Courtship of Princess Leia was featured in Wednesday’s episode of The Book of Boba Fett.
From the Wookieepedia twitter account: “We are very sad to report that David Farland, who wrote several novels and stories in the Star Wars universe under the name Dave Wolverton, passed away last night. His son has reported that he held on long enough for his children to say goodbye, and passed on without pain.”
“Remember, the Force will be with you. Always.”
