For those of you who hadn't already heard, Jeanne Robinson died on May 30 after a long bout with cancer. Spider Robinson's wife was a dancer, choreographer, and writer. She created the idea of zero-gravity dance for Stardance, a novel she co-wrote with Spider and is now a feature film in production. Here's the article from The Chronicle Herald about the news of her passing.

Jeanne, you will be missed. We'll think of you when we head into the stars, dancing all the way.

Wow. That is a shame. I read that book back in high school. it had quite an impact on me.

Sad to think she won't get to see the finished movie, but it's wonderful how closely she'd been working with cast and crew on the project. I've never actually read the book, but the movie looks and sounds amazing. (I mostly know Spider Robinson for Callahan's bar.)
