This afternoon has been a sad one for many of us who love sf/fantasy. One of the best, Anne McCaffrey, has died. You can find more here.
I’m not going to say much. Just that I had the pleasure to meet here several times at book signings. She was the first author I’d ever waited in line to get her signature. The first time was when White Dragon came out. What made it so wonderful was the fact the signing took place in a small bookstore and McCaffrey was gracious and funny and took time to talk to everyone there. She brought me back into sf/fantasy with her Pern series.
So, to a grand lady who gave me many, many hours of escape through her books, you’ll be missed. But now you can fly with your dragons.
