Makefrijeva je bila velikan fantastike.

Bila je prva žena koja je dobila Huga. Prva žena koja je dobila Nebulu - i prvi pisac koji je sa romanom naučne fantastike dospeo na bestseler listu Njujork tajmsa. Čast mi je što sam kao urednik u Alnariju izdejstvovao da se kod nas objavi njena izvorna trilogija o Pernu, koju je Boban započeo u Znaku Sagite.

RIP.

Dragonwriter: A Tribute to Anne McCaffrey and Pern



Science fiction Grand Master Anne McCaffrey and her work, particularly her Dragonriders of Pern series, are beloved by generations of readers. She was one of the first science fiction writers to appear on the New York Times bestseller list, the first woman to win the Hugo and Nebula Awards, and an inductee to the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. Her death in November 2011 was met with an outpouring of grief and memories from those whose lives her stories had touched. Edited by her son Todd, Dragonwriter collects McCaffrey’s friends, fans, and professional admirers to remember and pay tribute to the pioneering science fiction author, from the way her love of music and horses influenced her work to her redefinition of the SF genre.
