It is with great sadness that Del Rey Books and Random House report the passing of beloved author Anne McCaffrey. Anne McCaffrey was best known for her award-winning and immensely popular Dragonriders of Pern® novels. McCaffrey died at her home in Ireland on November 21st shortly after suffering a stroke. She was 85 years old. She is survived by her two sons and daughter.
While, we at Neverending Nights, never managed to squeeze in any PERN references, there is no denying the incredible impact Anne McCaffrey had in the world of fantasy! May you ride upon the backs of dragons, where ever you are now!
