Patricia Kennealy Morrison, Gone at 74

by SCIFI.radio | Jul 23, 2021 | Science Fiction / Fantasy

Patricia Kennealy Morrison March 4, 1946 – July 23, 2021

American SF & mystery author Patricia Kennealy Morrison has died in her sleep. She was 74.

Morrison’s published works include rock criticism, a memoir, and two series of science fiction/fantasy and murder mystery novels. Her books are evenly divided between the series The Keltiad and The Rock & Roll Murders: The Rennie Stride Mysteries.

Her other significant book was Strange Days: My Life With And Without Jim Morrison [1992].

As first a writer and then the editor-in-chief of Jazz & Pop magazine in the late 1960s, she was one of the first women rock critics. She was a Dame of the Ordo Supremus Militaris Templi Hierosolymitani, a High Priestess in a Celtic Pagan tradition and a member of Mensa.

Her sister Regina passed away earlier this year with cancer, and her handfasted beloved Jim Morrison in 1971.

"Handfasted"? Had to look that one up.
Couldn't they have just said "husband"?

Really? I guess I'll have to look it up as well.

I assumed it was a (really bad) typo. The context made it clear that
the writer intended "husband", so just a really bad typo.

Where is she going to be interred? Next to JM in Père Lachaise?
