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(R) 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 the one before; legendary SFF artist Michael Whelan shares (and 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. Contributors include: * Angelina Adams * David Brin * David Gerrold * John Goodwin * Janis Ian * Alec Johnson * Georgeanne Kennedy * Mercedes Lackey * Sharon Lee and Steve Miller * Lois McMaster Bujold * Elizabeth Moon * Charlotte Moore * Robert Neilson * Jody Lynn Nye and Bill Fawcett * Robin Roberts * Elizabeth Ann Scarborough * Wen Spencer * Michael Whelan * Richard J.
