In Renegades and following books as Jayge Lilcamp.

In the Tower books as Gollee Gren.

Golanth a. k. a. Golly is also named for him.

I also seem to remember a shuttle pilot on Ballybran called Johnny or John Green(e), but I'm not entirely sure.

And he's a helicopter(?) pilot on Petaybee, as John ingutiak Greene, I think.


Which book is Jonagren Svangel(sp?) from?

He was in the Pegasus series as Johnny Greenie, and I think I remember him in the Acorna series, he's in most of her books somewhere, that's been nagging me for years, why he was added everywhere!

Because the real John Green was a close friend of AnnMcCaffrey. Ever notice that, no matter what universe of Anne's he appears in, he is always one of the silent good guys? Behind the scenes most of the time, hard working, a good friend to have......

I think Anne's characterizations are quite some tribute to the man. Makes me wish I could have met him.

yeah...

its a wonderful way to honour someone for as long as the books are read someone is going to ask. "Who is this Johnny Greene?"
and so his memory'll go on.

Jonagren Svangel is in Nimisha's Ship yes... Johnny Greene the real fellow was a friend of Anne and her family, but got murdered, so Anne added him to her books giving his name lives he would never read... a true honor...

OOOOOooooooooooooooo

I just reread No one Noticed the Cat for fun (short book) and it suddenly dawned on me that Grenejon Klanto, Baron Illify is nobody than the elusive Johnny Green!

I mean, Grenejon.... Green John.....why didn't I see that before

John Green was a good friend of the McCaffrey family who was killed. That's why he's in every Anne McCaffrey story. He life here was short, but now he'll live forever. He is lost but never forgotten.

I believe he's Jay Green in the Freedom Series. (I may be a little off on the name. My books are out on loan right now.)
