A Sad Day – RIP Anne McCaffrey

Please join me in a moment of silence for the passing of a legend. Anne McCaffrey passed away today at the age of 85.

Anne McCaffrey gave me countless hours of mind expanding entertainment. She was a trailblazer for all women science fiction and fantasy writers. She will be missed.

The Del Rey website posted the following:

It is with great sadness that Del Rey Books and Random House report the passing of beloved author Anne McCaffrey. Anne McCaffrey was best known for her award-winning and immensely popular Dragonriders of Pern® novels. McCaffrey died at her home in Ireland on November 21st shortly after suffering a stroke. She was 85 years old. She is survived by her two sons and daughter.

Rest In Peace Ms. McCaffrey.  Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
