Brian Daley
Author Brian Daley, who wrote The Doomfarers of Coramonde and other works of fantasy and science fiction, including three "Star Wars" novels, died February 18 (1996) at his home in Arnold, MD, near Annapolis. He was 48*. The cause was pancreatic cancer, said his wife, Lucia St. Clair Robson. He worked as a house painter, waiter and welfare case worker before publishing The Doomfarers of Coramonde (1977), about an Army unit that is transported from Vietnam to an alternate universe, where it must slay a dragon. The book's success led to a sequel, The Starfollowers of Coramonde (1979). Daley wrote three novels based on the film "Star Wars": Han Solo at Stars' End, (1979), Han Solo's Revenge (1979) and Han Solo and the Lost Legacy (1982).
