    Science fiction and fantasy write Anne McCaffrey died of a stroke yesterday at the age of 85. She was the first woman to win a Hugo and Nebula award and the first woman to make it to the New York Bestsellers List with a science fiction novel (The White Dragon). She'll be missed!

    RIP

    The Crystal Singer is the only book of hers I recall reading but the old guard will take a long time to fade away.

    In an attempt to stop duplication, I'm going to close this thread and send people to the other thread we have about this sad event.

    Talk about it HERE.

    Thank you!
