Anne McCaffrey Dies at Age 85
While McCaffrey is best remembered for her Dragonriders of Pern series, one that I have enjoyed over the years and re-read the early novels, I also have a fondness for her very first novel, Restoree, a book that has stayed with me over the years for all its innovative concepts despite its seeming to be a science fiction romance work. I also have a love of the Brain and Brawn Ship series, that started with The Ship Who Sang, and the Doona series, that began with Decision at Doona as well, but she will be best remembered for her Dragonriders series, and that's fitting.
McCaffrey gave me many, many hours of enjoyable reading, and she will live on forever on our bookshelves.
Rest In Peace, Anne McCaffrey. And thank you.
