The Crystal Singer series is a series of science fiction novels by American writer Anne McCaffrey.

The series is set on the planet Ballybran which is under a permanent biohazard travel restriction. Ballybran is home to one of the FSP's wealthiest, yet most reclusive organizations — the Heptite Guild. Source of invaluable crystals vital to various industries, the Heptite Guild is known to require absolute, perfect pitch in hearing and voice for all applicants, especially those seeking to mine crystal by song.

Novels in the series are:

  • Crystal Singer (1982) ISBN 0-345-32786-1 (first published in four parts in Continuum 1, 2, 3, & 4, edited by Roger Elwood)
  • Killashandra (1986) ISBN 0-345-31600-2 (includes a Brainship from the Ship series by the same author, in the same setting, in a minor role. This was not a main character in any novel.)
  • Crystal Line (1992) ISBN 0-345-38491-1 (includes two indirect appears to Brainships from the Ship series noted above, although neither as a main character in any novel. One of them (Brenden) is the same Brainship from 'Killashandra').
