Mezo, Francine

(1935-    ) US author whose Fall of Worlds/Areia Darenga series of Space Operas, comprising The Fall of Worlds (1980), Unless She Burn (1981) and No Earthly Shore (1981), features a female Starship captain (Areia Darenga) who also serves as a warrior mercenary in Military SF adventures covering a good portion of the Galaxy. Unusually, the sequence closes firmly, with no hints of sequels, in a minor-key, Planetary Romance frame. [JC]
