The Passing of the greatest Dragonrider of them all

I'm sad to report that Anne McCaffrey, the famed sci fi writer who broke ground for female sci fi writers, and brought new light on the abilities of supposedly disabled people ("The Ship who Sang") passed away yesterday. I read her earlier stuff while I was in college and it was amazing to picture such drama and passion on a planet so far away.

If you've never heard of the book series "The Dragonriders of Pern," get on over to Amazon or fire up your Kindle - you will not be disappointed by this legendary series of adventures.

Here's a blurb about her passing:
