Anne McCaffrey was one of my favorite writers when I was a teen. Forty years later I still have many of her books on my shelf.

I love her books.  Over time I hope to collect the special editions of her books.  It's going to be an expensive undertaking but her books are worth it.  I've read them many times and consider many of the characters like old friends.  Master Robinson being one of my favorite characters.
