Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

I don't think it was explicitly for Playboy (and that's not where it was published), just for what she termed as the 'soft-core porn market' of the day. In other words it was written to sell because...

Re: Are you an Anne McCaffrey collector?

As long as your collection makes you happy, that's all that matters!

(As for the thread saying there was a new post when there wasn't, I suspect it does that when there's a new vote.)

Re: Crystal Singer Question

Did YA really exist as a marketing category when the Crystal Singer books were published? I feel like they predate it.
