I guess I never was a "true fan" of Anne McCaffrey's books. I really liked most of her work and appreciated her books for their strong heroines. When I found this tribute book to her from my library's ebook system, I didn't hesitate to read it.
This book has 20 or so stories from Anne's friends and fans (like LM Bujold, Elizabeth Moon, Mercedes Lackey, Michael Whelan), reminiscing her and the impact her books woke in them. She came out like a really nice person, who was always happy to help her friends and chat with fans. I had tears in my eyes more than once when reading this.
Guess her life wasn't always easy, but the spirit that was shown in the book made me admire her more. Never give up, and always look on the bright side of things, could have been her motto.
Perhaps some day I have time to re-read some of the Pern books... And there are some others by her that I haven't read at all.
