I feel bad for finding out over a week late but better late than never. On Nov 21st, Author Anne McCaffrey passed away at her home in Ireland at the age of 85. I had used her setting of Dragonriders of Pern to show how to do world building well in an earlier blog post just a few months ago. I began reading her books in Junior High and her writing was a great influence on my imagination and my own imaginary worlds. She will be remembered among the many great writers that have come before.
