Anne McCaffreyPosted: November 30, 2011 | |
One of my childhood/adolescent/current favorites, Anne McCaffrey has died.
This blog/post/article says things much better than I can:
Thanks for saying things so well.
During her career, Mrs. McCaffrey wrote over 80 published works in Fantasy, Short-Story, and Science Fiction. She was awarded the Hugo, Nebula, named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, Inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame, was the first woman science-fiction author to make the NY Times Bestseller list, and was awarded the Margaret A Edwards award by the ALA for lifetime acheivement in writing for young people.
More on awards later. Thanks for understanding. 🙂
