Anne McCaffrey is one of my favourite fantasy/ Sci-Fi authors and I have managed to collect most of the book she has written. Something that I found when collecting these books was that it can be quite confusing working out her many series, cross over and stand alone novels and how they fit in with each other. I am hoping that this guide will make things a little easier for those searching for particular books and series and the best order in which to read them.
