RIP Anne McCaffrey, 1926-2011

She was known for many things, primarily the Dragonriders of Pern series, but she was also the first woman to win a Hugo Award for fiction and later, a Nebula Award. According to Tor.com, she was also the first Science Fiction and Fantasy writer to have a book to hit the New York Times Best-Seller. A great loss to nerdom.
