Default Re: The Size of Pern

My headcanon's always been "Earth-sized, give or take." There are a lot of wonderful things about the Pern series, but Anne McCaffrey's math skills aren't one of them. These are the same books that give us the meter/foot dragons, and a colony going from 6,000 people to 20,000 people in 8 years.

I think it's more important to take the gist of what the story was supposed to convey and not get hung up on the hard numbers, because the numbers don't make much sense.
