Another of the great SF writers is gone

(Via Middle of the Right)

This is getting to be a depressing thing, my occasional noting of the science fiction writers whom I have read and who are now going to write no more.

The latest is Anne McCaffrey. I read a number of her Pern novels along with The Ship Who Sang. I haven’t read any of her work in a very long time, as my tastes have changed over the years. However, I’m always going to remember afternoons on the back porch, reading her and the others.
