Anne McCaffrey has passed away. She did a lot of groundbreaking for women in science fiction. She made the world fall in love with dragons. She will be sorely missed. I have written an elegy, shared below.
-- an elegy for Anne McCaffrey, 1 April 1926 - 21 November 2011
No more seen
Gone to catch
Gone where stars
And ships sing,
Turned on slim
Gone from Earth,
Heart and mind

Another elegy for Anne has been posted on Feminist SF.
If you know of more, please share.
