"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"-- Provided by publisher.

These are short essays about Anne's positive influence on other Sci-Fi writers, full of personal stories and funny anecdotes. Highly recommended for writers and rabid McCaffrey fans. I found a few book/short story recommendations I did not previously know. It gives you a sense of Anne's personal life and some depth to her world development in her Pern series. Focus is on the Pern books; other series are mentioned, related to her life experience. Easy to read, I finished it in one night.
