    Without question, my favorite science fantasy writer, for the Dragonrider novels of Pern. Her Crystal Singer series was also a favorite and the FT & T novels are worth a mention.

    Methodical, logical but with the ability to carry a reader away completely, her talent was prodigious. Her son, first in collaboration, later as a solo author has added to her Pern novels...and I'm very happy about that.

    But her genius and ability will be missed but remembered for many years to come.

    "The Smallest Dragonboy" is a story that I taught for years, when I also taught literature. Hope she's wearing her weyrhide on her journey between.
