Anne McCafrey's last book Dragonseye
« on: June 11, 2013, 10:34:16 pm »
I finally read what i think was the last book she wrote alone.  (Not sure how much she contributed to the ones with her son).

It starts as the 2nd Fall is imminent and explains a little of how things were changed and lost (like paper and records of landing).  But it was sad to read because she was apparently setting up several new characters for more books (who seem vaguely like ancestors we do know well), but they were left hanging.  Hopefully KK will give us closure (which to me still includes Morgan learning who he is).  I have always connect Anne and KK since i started reading both at the same time.

Is KK sick?  This is the first I've heard of it! 

Let's hope that she stays with us for a long, long time and writes us many, many more books.

No, or if she is, she certainly hasn't mentioned anything about it in chat.  I think tenworld was just speaking in more general terms of hoping she gives her readers more closure with regards to story threads left dangling than Anne was able to, given Anne's failing health towards the end of her writing career.

sorry, didnt mean to imply anything about KK.  Anne Mc died unexpectantly (as far as I know), and authors sometimes give up before the readers are ready (David Brin eg) but I expect KK will finish the Childe series,

I wouldn't call Anne Mc.'s death 'unexpected.'  She was an old lady, had been sick a long time, and had been handing the "Matter of Pern" over to her son.

Anent authors stopping before their readers are ready, consider C.S. Lewis' closing of the Chronicles of Narnia.  He said, "There are only two times to stop a series---before everyone is sick of it, or after."
