    Discovering McCaffrey from the start

    Having gotten to March 1959 in my day-by-day science fact/fiction blog, I'm delighted to find McCaffrey's first story: galacticjourney | A study in contrasts (April 1959 Fantasy & Science Fiction, Part 2; 2-22-1959) Did anyone here discover her in her early period, or did you find her with the...

    Anne McCaffrey: Adoration and a query, please

    Hello Folks. As a middle-aged man I am saddened by the loss of yet another amazingly bright light. Ms. McCaffrey's works are immensely appreciated treasures (at least by this reader). Some of my earliest scifi readings were her works, and they have remained dear to me all throughout the ~40...

    Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey

    I first read this book when the UK paperback came out in 1970 and was blown away by it. I read it at least a couple more times over the next few years, but not since. Having recently reviewed Naomi Novik's Temeraire, which borrows heavily from Dragonflight in its concept of dragons, I thought it...

    Short Story by Anne

    I read a short story in an anthology, years ago. The story was written by Anne McCaffrey. It was about a young boy who could make things disappear by looking at them through a tube of cardboard and blinking!

    Sequel to Freedom's Ransom

    Does anyone know if there is going to be a sequel to Freedom's Ransom (Freedom Series) or a continuation of the series/universe of some nature? There are so many loose ends, specifically, who and where are the Farmers.

    The Ends of Anne's books.

    I was just wondering what people though of how Anne ends her books. Only read her Pern series myself but she seems to end them kind of abruptly and I think there should be more to them sometimes.

    Anne McCaffrey - The Masterharper of Pern

    Original review by Jane Jinn: I was intrigued, but disappointed. I had been a fan of Anne McCaffrey's for several years and have read, re-read, and analysed her books while waiting for each new one to come out, but this is where I gave up and stopped reading. Robinton is just too perfect...

    Rearranging my bookcase recently led to my rediscovering several novels that I thought I'd lost, and I was pleased because they were some of my favourites. That got me thinking about which one - out of any of Anne's series - was my actual favourite. I think my favourite has to be The White...
