I'm sorry to hear that. I believe I read, and read again, all of her books.

Anne McCaffrey has been a part of my life since I was in grade school, I have "lived" in her world for so many years. It was heart wrenching this morning when the first e-mail I opened was this.

I envy you, Vit, reading her books for the first time.
