RIP: Anne McCaffrey

Leave a comment

It seems that Anne McCaffrey, one of the great science fiction writers, has passed away.

Needless to say, the genre community has suffered some big losses in the last few years.  McCaffrey will be remembered for a long time to come, if not for being a great writer (she was), then certainly for helping shape genre fiction (she did).  She’ll be placed along side E. E. “Doc” Smith, Isaac Asimov, Octavia Butler, Robert Heinlein, Poul Anderson, Joanna Russ, and many more.

We’ll miss you, Anne.
