Real sad news. Anne McCaffrey, one of the greats of the genre, has passed away. She was an incredible world-builder. I also remember being blown away when she used “fuck” repeatedly in a fantasy novel. It was the first time I’d seen that when I was a kid, and taught me the importance of keeping true to a character no matter what the genre or its conventions.

And if you didn’t know, when Nina is talking about her dragon sex fantasy in the 2nd episode of Mythomania, that’s a reference to Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Perns series. R.I.P. Anne McCaffrey.
