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.

Must-listen for Anne fans
Uplifting and sad at the same time
There was so much more to Anne McCaffrey than being an author, of which she was marvelous. Wife, mother, friend, mentor, confidant.
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.
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.
I went through the whole gamut of emotions. Knowing how it would end.. I still cried.
