While reading one of her books, I found a link to her online fan forum, the original Kitchen Table. While there, I learned about an event called DragonCon. Learned about the SCA, at my first DragonCon. While in the SCA I learned about gaming. After several DragonCons, I heard about an event called Frolicon. I eventually worked up the nerve to go to one. At Frolicon, I learned about polyamory and kink. A couple of Frolicons later I learned about Alchemy and the burner culture. Which brings me up to present. I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't though to take a look at that link I found.
Along the way I've made many friends. Few I would have met if I hadn't started on the journey that Anne McCaffrey started. She helped to lead me to more people who thought and believed similarly to me.
For that I thank you Anne, I will never forget you.
