Jenny Starr was an influential Star Trek TOS fan writer in the 1980s.

One contemporary fan described her as "one the best writers to come to K/S in years,"[1] and another wrote that she was "one of the best authors around, K/S or otherwise."[2] A 1987 LOC stated:

"Ms. Starr knows Kirk as well as any writer in fandom today. She feels his hurts and joys and makes us feel them down to our toes as well. If she doesn't get too clinical and cool, (and she doesn't in [Waiting for Rain]) she is one of the top three or four writers in fandom today."[3]

More recent reviewers have stated: "Jenny Starr was one of the best of our genre‘s early writers"[4] and "I mourn the day Jenny Starr stopped writing K/S, because in my opinion she is one of our finest writers."[5]
