To honor the memory of Star Wars
author Aaron Allston, who passed away last month
reportedly due to a massive heart failure, our friends at Far, Far Away Radio are hosting a charity auction
to benefit the American Heart Association. The prize is a signed first-edition copy of Fate of the Jedi: Backlash
, which Allston wrote after undergoing emergency quadruple bypass heart surgery in 2009.
"Let us use Star Wars
to celebrate Aaron's life and to help others who are facing trials similar to his own," writes FAR co-founder Austin Blankenship. "This is an opportunity to further Mr. Allston's legacy of kindness by reaching out to the countless people who need help getting through their personal hard times. We can make the world a better place, much like Aaron Allston did through his endearing personality and wonderful stories."Click here
