The incredible Anne McCaffrey has died at age 85. Her work has had an indelible effect on the world of science fiction and fantasy. She created worlds that came to life and were embraced by fans.
Personally, I have read most of her books. I loved the Pern books, raced through The Ship Who Sang series, and later discovered the Crystal Singer series and loved that too. Her books were infinitely readable and shareable.
Now I have to find some of them and get them in the hands of my teenage son. I know no better way to celebrate her life than sharing her books with a new reader.
