In the last 48 or so hours I have learned that Anne McCaffrey, author of the Pern series as well as The Tower & The Hive series - among other novels - has passed beyond the veil.

I have been a fan of her works for years, ever since she resparked my interest in reading back in '81 when I was very seriously loosing my interest in books. Sadly, I never got the chance to meet her.

Rest in peace Ms. McCaffrey, till we meet again in the place where no Shadows fall.

Anne McCaffrey 01/04/26-21/11/11
