I haven't seen this confirmed anywhere but on Twitter, but it appears that Anne McCaffrey has passed away from a stroke.

Of course, I read her Pern novels when I was a kid. We all read her Pern novels when I was a kid. However, my fondest memory of Anne McCaffrey was of getting to ask her a few questions during an online chat she did on CompuServe. I was probably about 11 or 12 years old, and I asked a bunch of what I now recognize were more or less the standard newbie questions. She answered them all very patiently and thoroughly without giving any indication that she had heard them all a million times before. I not only learned something about writing from her, but also something about how to be an awesome human being.
