  1. Hi Jerry,

    She was a wonderful writer and she will be missed. She had already passed down her Pern series to her son Tod, so the books will continue. I have a lot of her books and enjoyed everyone. From what I understand she was instrumental in getting the late J.R.R. Tolkien a settlement when his LORs book where illegally printed and sold here in the US.
