Fellow Weyr Members

Long live Pern. Anne McCaffrey passed from this life at the age of 85. She was a constant source of imagination, entertainment and enthralled me over and over with her books. Of course the Dragonrider books were my favorites and probably influenced my fascination with dragons as much as did Merlin, the Arthurian mage. Yes I do realize that dragons and probably Merlin too are mythological. Anne was not. She was prolific and always great fun to read. I think there is a movie in the making based upon her dragon books. Read more about this great science fiction writer and pioneer at Wikipedia.
