Anne McCaffrey

Oh man.... this is like losing a family member to me. I 've read almost all her books, many more than just once.

Thank you Anne, for sharing your worlds with us.

Random House released a statement this afternoon confirming that fantasy author Anne McCaffrey has passed away at age 85. Reports say that she suffered a stroke in her home in Ireland.

McCaffrey is best known for her Dragonriders of Pern series. She began her career in 1967 with the novel Restoree, and was rumored to be working on the 23rd installment in the Pern series to be released next year.
