A Sad Day – RIP Anne McCaffrey
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:

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