I know many here are fans of her work, tonight let's lift a glass to her memory, with thanks.

She changes the world for female writers in the genera. She will be missed.

Even though I've never been able to read any of her stuff, sorry to hear of her passing.

I heard about this earlier today, broke my heart. :(

She was a major, if not THE major influence on me and my love of fiction starting from basically as soon as I was old enough to read. She will be deeply missed.

I raise my glass of JAO and bid her a fond farewell.

I pretty much cried when I heard. She is really what started my voracious reading habit. I've visited so many worlds and met so many great people with her words - both in the books and out. I'm going to miss her.

Peaceful and complete transition to her.
Peace to her loved ones.
I'd never heard of her until the SciFi thread here, and started with a Pern novel on tape.

That is too bad. Rest in peace. She was a good writer; I liked her work.

A fine talent! My sister and I always assumed she had parrots that she modeled her dragon characterizations on. My Macaws eyes do indeed whirl. Bridey is just a little hahn, but she thinks she is a dragon!
