    Not a great fan of the series, but read a few of the books and some others she wrote.
    Never a good day when pillars of the fantasy community pass away.

    Yeah, I read the first couple of books but they didn't really grab me. Still, she was definitely one of my original fantasy authors (the others being Piers Anthony and Terry Brooks).

    R.I.P. Anne McCaffrey...:(

    Yeah, same here. I think I read the first 2-4 books of the Dragonriders series. Can't really remember. So not one of my personal favorites, but a big influence on science fiction.
