It was announced today that Peter Allan Fields has passed away. Peter wrote two episodes for Xena - "The Reckoning" and "Death Mask".
Steven Sears has posted his memories of working with Peter on Xena on Facebook
Steven L. Sears: Peter was wonderful to work with. He was so dedicated to getting Xena right and an absolute professional. He called use once to apologize that his script wasn't going to be done when he said it was. We said it wasn't a problem. He promised to turn it in a day later. The reason? He was in the hospital. But still concerned that he wouldn't meet his deadline.
RIP Peter. Of the many stories I tell about working in the business, you're one of the good ones.
I knew of Peter's work before he wrote those two Xena episodes. Peter wrote for 13 episodes for Star Trek - TNG and DS9. He was a master storyteller and one of my favourite writers.
