When Anne McCaffrey passed in November 2011, it was not only those closest to her who mourned her death; legions of readers also felt the loss deeply. The pioneering science fiction author behind the Dragonriders of Pern series crafted intricate stories, enthralling worlds, and strong heroines that profoundly impacted the science fiction community and genre.

In Dragonwriter, Anne’s son and Pern writer Todd McCaffrey collects memories and stories about the beloved author, along with insights into her writing and legacy, from those who knew her best. Nebula Award-winner Elizabeth Moon relates the lessons she learned from Pern’s Lessa (and from Lessa’s creator); Hugo Award-winner David Brin recalls Anne’s steadfast belief that the world to come will be better than the one before; legendary SFF artist Michael Whelan tells stories about never-before-published Pern sketches from his archives; and more.

Join Anne’s co-writers, fellow science fiction authors, family, and friends in remembering her life and exploring how her mind and pen shaped not only the Weyrs of Pern, but also the literary landscape as we know it.

    Story
    "Must-listen for Anne fans"

    Meaningful essays from many of Anne's close friends, fans and family. It was like being present at a celebration of her life and work. I found this book because Janis Ian was a close friend and contributor, and I just finished her wonderful autobiography.

    "Uplifting and sad at the same time"
    What did you love best about Dragonwriter?

    There was so much more to Anne McCaffrey than being an author, of which she was marvelous. Wife, mother, friend, mentor, confidant.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's gives the reader/listener an open door to the life and loves of Anne Mccaffrey, the ups and downs, how she helped those in need, and just how much she was dearly cherished.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The respect, depth of feeling of the narrators, and the stories of those who knew Annie so well. It wasn't just respect, but a deep abiding love.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I went through the whole gamut of emotions. Knowing how it would end.. I still cried.

    Story
    "These tributes to Ann McCaffrey was a Joy."

    Every story in this book very in formative on how Ann McCaffrey touched every persons life. If only a genie were to grant me 3 wishes. One would have been to know her, befriended her, and got to lover her for a person not just a author.

    My best regards to her family (and extended).
