RIP: Anne McCaffrey


I just read the news that Hugo winner and Science Fiction Hall of Fame inductee Anne McCaffrey died yesterday. Anne created one of my favorite worlds and spawned my own career in fan fic writing. During the course of running my Play by Email Pern role playing game, I actually struck up an email conversation with the Dragonlady herself – an acquaintance will I treasure always. She was sweet and generous and happy to share her wonderful creations.

Thank you, Annie. You will be missed. Your gold dragon has gone *between*.

    I’m sad. I loved the Pern series and the Crystal Singer series.
