Sad to see the news this afternoon that Anne McCaffrey died after suffering a stroke yesterday. I haven't read as much of her work as I know some of you have, but she was certainly a pioneer of fantasy fiction, and sparked an entire sub-genre.

I hadn't known that Anne was born in Cambridge to Irish-American parents, and then moved to Ireland just two years after her first visit, when she was in her mid 40s.
