Author Anne McCaffrey a new (to me) author

Friday, June 21, 2013

"McCaffrey considered most of her work science fiction and enjoyed "cutting them short when they call me a 'fantasy' writer". All the Pern books may be considered science fiction, since the dragons were genetically engineered by the Pern colonists. Regarding science, she said "I don't keep up with developments, but I do find an expert in any field in which I must explain myself and the science involved".[24] Astronomer Steven Beard often helped with science questions,[46] and McCaffrey acknowledged reproductive biologist Jack Cohen several times."
