Re: Pern Book, Short Story, and Miscellany List
 
You'll find that sometimes folks will abbreviate the book titles when referring to them. Although we encourage folks to write out title so that they are clear to all, the following is a list of acronyms you might come across or wish to use. A good practice is to write out the title in full the first time you use it, and subsequently in the post to abbreviate it. Some of the first published books have more than one standard abbreviation, which are separated by commas in the list.
