McCaffrey created the Dragonriders of Pern series, and The Ship Who Sang, one of the first stories to really explore the question of cyborged humans with emotional depth.
Sarah A Hoyt has the story here.
I shall miss Anne. She started my love of reading with Dragonflight. I remember picking it up one year (age 8?) and plowing through the first 100 pages. Just couldn’t get through it so put it down. Picked it up the next year and had the original three read in less than a week.
Rest in peace, Anne.
Another of the great writers has passed.
We are diminished by her absence.
I read “Weyr Search”, the first short story that eventually morphed into the Dragonriders series, not many years after it was written.
It won a Hugo and was ground breaking and nuanced.
