"My sister and my brother ships speak softly by my side
But I only hear the emptiness of space
And the siren song which calls to me
From a burning, white-hot star
Promising oblivion and peace.

And the stars still dance their spiral dance
And the planets circle far
But the Ship Who Sang shall sing no more
Between the distant stars.
I'll sing no more..."

-- from The Ship Who Sang, by Cecilia Eng

Good bye, Anne McCaffrey.

Thank you for Helva and Lessa, F'nor and Menolly, Killashandra and Sassinak, and Robinton, the Harper, O The Harper.

I shall miss you and the marvelous worlds inside your head.

She's still singing, just not where we can hear.

Hmmm, I wonder if any of her books got translated to Swedish. Suddenly feel like re-reading some, but am also trying to obey a "no fiction in English" while I am trying to learn Swedish...
