Hey guys, it's been awhile! For those who are sci-fi afficianados like myself, Anne McCaffrey, writer of the famed Pern series passed away last week. She is by far my favorite author, and I know I wouldn't be writing words down without her. Not sure if folk here really are into the same sort of books, but figure it can't hurt to try to serve her memory everywhere I hang out.
My friend Hans wrote a little piece for her in the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/hans-van-der-boom/anne-mccaffrey-an-appreciation_b_1110988.html
I had a wonderful personal experience with her several years ago, and was pleasantly shocked at how responsive a famous writer was to a teenaged fan.
For those of you looking for reading material, I suggest Dragonflight or The Crystal Singer.
