_Anne McCaffrey is niet meer. De Grandmaster overleed op 85-jarige leeftijd in haar huis in Ierland. Ze werd vooral bekend met haar langlopende ‘Pern’-serie die zowel over sf als over fantasy ging. Ze was ook de eerste vrouw die zowel de HUGO als de NEBULA award won en dat deed ze respectievelijk in 1968 met ‘Weyr Search’ en ‘Dragonrider’ (1969).


_Pern novel ‘The White Dragon’ (1978) was the first hardcover SF novel to make the New York Times bestseller list. Many of the later books in the ‘Pern’ series were written in collaboration with McCaffrey’s son Todd. In all she authored or co-wrote more than 100 titles, beginning with first novel ‘Restoree’ (1967).

Her other works include the Freedom series, the ‘Doona’ series (with Jody Lynn Nye), the ‘Dinosaur Planet’ series (with Jody Lynn Nye and Elizabeth Moon), the ‘Crystal Singer’ series, the ‘Brain & Brawn Ship’ series (with Margaret Ball, Mercedes Lackey, S.M. Stirling, and Jody Lynn Nye), the ‘Petaybee’ series (with Elizabeth Ann Scarborough), ‘the Talent’ series, the ‘Tower & Hive’ series, the ‘Acorna’ series (with Margaret Ball, Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, and various other authors), and the ‘Coelura’ series.

Anne Inez McCaffrey was born April 1, 1926 in Cambridge MA. She attended Radcliffe College, graduating in 1947, and worked as an advertising copywriter while directing and performing in stage productions. She married H. Wright Johnson in 1950, and had three children. She divorced Johnson in 1970, and moved to Ireland, where she opened a stable and began raising horses.

Her many honors include being named a SFWA Grand Master (2005); induction into the SF Hall of Fame (2006); and a Robert A. Heinlein Award (2007).
