Karen Osman, a.k.a. Karen Winter[1] wrote Star Wars fanfiction in the early 80s.

She was published in numerous paper zines and edited one of her own, an Empire-centric one called Imperial Entanglements. Knight of Shadows, her novel about Darth Vader's early life, was mentioned in Henry Jenkins's Textual Poachers.

Osman wrote Evidence, a very, very early Han/Luke fic.

Osman is also the author of two essays: The Politics of STAR WARS and The Once And Future Jedi.
