The use of N is problematic since it has a defined meaning in Mathematica.
However, you could use SuperStar[N] or SuperStar["N"].

pRef2 = Plot[Log[10, 0.3] - x, {x, -1, 2}, 
  FrameLabel -> {"log L (mJy\nkpc^2)", 
    Log[Subscript[SuperStar["N"], psr]/Subscript["N", psr]]},
  Frame -> True,
  ImageSize -> 300]

GraphicsGrid[{{pRef2}, {pRef2}}]

now works.

I am seeing an odd circumstance where GraphicsGrid of a plot with
moderately complex frame labels crashes the front end repeatably:

pRef =    Plot[ Log[10, 0.3] - x, {x,-1,2},   FrameLabel->{"log L (mJy
kpc^2)", Log[Subscript[Superscript[N,"*"],psr]/Subscript[N,psr]]},

GraphicsGrid[{{pRef}, {pRef}}];

I know I can get something like    Log[Subscript[SuperStar[N], psr]/
Subscript[N, psr]] to render almost as nicely.  I'm wondering why this
particular instance crashes and what sort of structures in frame
labels I should avoid.
