Amanda Cross dies 

Carolyn Heilbrun, a feminist scholar who wrote many novels under the pseudonym Amanda Cross, died at the age of 77. According to her son, Heilbrun committed suicide although she had not been ill. "She wanted to control her destiny," he said, "and she felt her life was a journey that had concluded."

A very sad loss indeed.

EDIT: To the surprise of no one, the New York Post and the Daily News provide more details on Heilbrun's demise.
