Re: Pern's Population

This is an interesting question.

One thing to consider is when you couple a more modern level of medicine (and they have kept most of this even into the 9th Pass) and that there are so many...

Re: Doctor Who

I've been a huge Dr. Who fan since December 1982 when I started with part 3 of The Hand of Fear (Eldrad must live!!!!). I can't remember when I watched Peter Davison for the first time, but in...

Re: What is Happening, part II

Well, today has given me a real bummer. A number of years ago I found a really great writing group. The SF/Fantasy slice I knew well split off into their own forum. Well, after being less than...

Re: New Pern Books !

I think you might be wrong about that. I believe fleas still transmit it. That is why we avoid animals that might carry the plague. It is also transmitted from person to person or animal to animal....

Re: What is Happening, part II

Adulting? It seems like that is all I do. Lots of stress the last two months with my eldest and his school. He's behind because of COVID and they are acting as if COVID didn't happen. Because of that...

Re: Screenwriter hired for Pern movie(s)

My question is movie or limited series?

A movie has to tell the story in around 2 hours. A limited series can give each book (parallel books) a series of 6 to 13 episodes. Which would you rather...

Re: Pearl harbor day

I was just reading that Edgar Rice Burroughs was there on Oahu that day. He and his son ended up serving guard duty for several days. ERB went on to be a war correspondant and his son joined and was...

Re: Zel's Automotive Antics & Occasional Distractions.

Re: Domick and Menolly

I don't know. I think by the time that might happen, she would be well established as a masterhaper skilled in many areas and would be a good candidate for Masterharper. And I think by that point...

Re: IF any dragon *could* survive the death of their rider, what would happen?

The dragon has to have a reason to stay that is stronger than grief. Nemorth stayed because of her eggs. She had a duty to dragonkind to remain until they were ready to hatch. She had to see that her...

Re: Spliced of a differnt topic, Unwritten Threads Within the Books, Thoughts?

I'm glad you asked this question. This is the sort of thing I think would be wonderful to see. If the Pern saga were turned into a TV series, this is the sort of thing that could flesh it out and let...

Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

Cheryl, what I meant was that Anne's books in general were not Romance. I was aware she did write some in that genre, but I seriously doubt she was able to dumb her writing down to the normal level...

Re: Anne's english

Language is an interesting thing. We gather it as we learn. Our language is a window to our past. I'm sure mine is heavily influenced by Anne and her dear friend Isaac Asimov. So I probably wouldn't...

Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

I've heard of most of those, but never read them. But my guess is that they are a far cry from the trashy bodice ripper romances. I'm guessing that they are her typical story quality but heavy on the...

Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

Such interesting topics that pop up after laying dormant for so long.

I really believe that each world is the creation and property of the author and they write what they want. And delving into...

Re: New Pern Books !

If you read Moreta, Dragonsdawn, and All They Weyrs of Pern, runnerbeasts are horses. They were horses in DD through to the crossing north. Runnel knew all the runnerbeast lineages back to that same...

I didn't meet her in person, but I did correspond with her several times and she was always wonderful. She will be missed greatly.

Re: Firelizard rising to mate

I believe I understand what you are asking. I think that such a person would get a bit aroused and it would be up to their personal standards if they wanted to ... provide some self relief ... or not.

Re: Are you an Anne McCaffrey collector?

Interesting that this topic came up as having a new post, but there isn't one.

But it leads me to add my comments on the topic.

Yes, I consider myself a collector. My collection is perhaps odd...

Re: Dragon size references

The lengths listed in Moreta were not there in the original Hardcover. I think they were added for the paperback. But there are dates for the passes, which were changed in All The Weyrs of Pern. So I...

Re: New Pern Books !

I found the book to be excellent. The description of Stupid with 6 legs was way off. And puting the Harper Hall inside Fort Hold instead of across from it as Anne clearly indicated was also off, but...

I'm not sure how to go about describing this author. Considering the audience it is perhaps best to start by saying she is nothing like Anne McCaffrey. Anne tends to keep her characters in real...

Amazing Zelandeth. I wish I had the skill to resurrect a few of my old devices, but the modern ones work for me, for the most part.
