Anne McCaffrey

Anne McCaffrey 1 April 1926 – 21 November 2011

All the dragons of all the Weyrs keened their grief to the stars. Pern lost it’s greatest heart.

Bon Voyage Ann

“The thing is, emotion – if it’s visibly felt by the writer – will go through all the processes it takes to publish a story and still hit the reader right in the gut. But you have to really mean it” Anne McCaffrey

    For many years I would go to my favorite bookstore where the first thing I did was see if Anne McCaffrey had a new Pern book on the shelves.

    I will miss her greatly.

      Hi there Harry. Thanks for stopping by.
      A few years ago I wanted to do a re-read of the Pern books, so I got all of them from our library and had a wonderful McCaffrey-fest. it took me right back to the wonder I felt when I first discovered them.
      I’ve been reading various blogs about her and there’s a common theme that she may not have been everyone’s first love, but once they discovered her, they were always in love with her.
