The organisers of Octocon have announced that Anne McCaffrey, creator of the phenomenally successful Dragonriders of Pern series of novels and author of such memorable stories as The Ship Who Sang and The Crystal Singer, will be Guest of Honour at Octocon 12 which will take place on October 13 and 14 2001.
"We are delighted to have Anne McCaffrey as our Guest of Honour," said Octocon Chairperson, Ruth Cassidy. "Anne is an immensely popular writer and has attended many of the last eleven Octocons, but never as Guest of Honour. We felt it was high time we acknowledged her contribution to the success of Octocon in the past."
