Author Info
Anne McCaffrey
Born in 1926, Anne McCaffrey became a writer somewhat later than most--her first novel, RESTOREE, was published in 1968. Prior to then, McCaffrey had studied Slavonic Language and Literature at Radcliffe College, been married and had three children, and devoted a lot of time and effort to music and acting, eventually becoming heavily involved with the American premiere of one of Carl Orff's stage pieces. Unquestionably, McCaffrey's major fiction work is the Dragon Riders of Pern series. It began auspiciously in 1967 with a Hugo Award-winning short story, "Weyr Search," that was expanded into her novel, DRAGONFLIGHT. Still going strong after more than 30 years, it is one of the most renowned series in the fantasy genre. The name of her home, Dragonhold-Underhill, is derived from these books. McCaffrey's first four books, RESTOREE, DECISION AT DOONA, DRAGONFLIGHT, and THE SHIP WHO SANG, are all classics written at a time when the worlds of science fiction and fantasy were largely dominated by male writers and male characters. McCaffrey's early writing stood in direct opposition the "establishment," and helped pave the way for other women writers. Her later material has continued in this vein, and while not perhaps achieving the commercial success of some of her contemporaries, has nonetheless maintained an extraordinarily high standard of quality.
