Re: A little Pernese humor

You find yourself about to describe someone as 'not the brightest glow in the basket'. (Been there!)

Re: A White Sport's Coat and Reincarnation

The quiz says I'd be a gold, and I'm happy to go with that, even though it's really easy to guess which way the answers will lead.

Re: Which gift?

I voted for Dragonsong, because that was the first one I read, and it got me hooked. I think A Gift of Dragons would also be a good choice for a less committed reader, as it gives several smaller...

Re: Cattenni without Eosi?

I don't think there's any danger of the Catteni regressing without the Eosi, but I would be very interested to see how their society will continue to develop without them. There are already signs of...

Re: Pern-wide Government

The system of the lords holder is positively feudal. You can see where it came from, with the original idea of each stakeholder being autonomous on their own holding, but this was never intended to...

Re: The Dolphins

I think most of the 25 'sleepers' were females, so the possible variety is probably even higher than that. I can't believe that a technologically advanced society would not have thought that aspect...

Re: Favorite Man in the 9 Star Legue

Afra. No contest. He's so unremittingly kind, even when he has to be firm with kids. The first Peter Reidinger would come second, and his latter-day namesake third.
