While I have yet to read any books by Anne McCaffrey, I know about her and her series of books (Dragon Riders of Pern). I actually have a list of her books tucked away in my "to find and read" stack. What huge loss to the Science Fiction an Fantasy world!

My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Anne McCaffrey, ‘Dragonriders of Pern’ Author, Dies
Anne McCaffrey, author of the “Dragonriders of Pern” series, has died. She was 85 years old.

Her publisher Random House reportedly announced that the author passed away after suffering a stroke.

McCaffrey’s books about a distant planet in which some inhabitants rode telepathic dragons to combat deadly falling alien Threads are considered seminal works of fantasy fiction. The books combined mythic inspiration, sci-fi and adventure.
