    Anne McCaffrey (1926-2011) RIP

    Just heard that Anne McCaffrey died on 21st November.

    In Memoriam: Anne McCaffrey (1926-2011)

    I've always enjoyed her work, and I've just been introducing my daughter to the Pern series.

    So sad to see another of the sci-fi authors of my youth go.

    Sad news indeed. My daughter is also almost old enough for the Pern books (easy sell for a girl who is a huge fan of dragons in all their varieties) and we were talking about Pern just the other day, so this is very poignant. Really enjoyed her books and characters over the years. A great contribution to the genre and will be sadly missed.

    Her novels were some of the most enthralling and memorable I read growing up. She will be sadly missed.

    In addition to Pern, I also really enjoyed her Brainship and psionic series.

    Wow... I'm sorry to hear this. She was a gifted writer, who wrote imaginative and vivid worlds. Our world is a little less bright for her loss.
