Anne McCaffrey, the groundbreaking, award-winning fantasy author who won a dedicated following with her sci-fi/fantasy blending series Dragonriders of Pern, passed away Tuesday, November 22. She is survived by her three children.
The Dragonriders of Pern series of books has been stuck in Development Hell for years. You know what Development Hell is, right? It's more like limbo: a place where some great ideas are stuck and unable to actually get turned into movies. Now the series has FINALLY been freed from that Hell.
