Hi Jolin! It suddenly occurred to me that you probably didn't see me wave! This is what happens when you start getting old; you start having problems separating the real world from the cyber one.

But welcome and well come!

Greetings all. Always hate having to think of what to say in intro posts. At least when the forum is topic-specific it's easier. First Anne McCaffrey book I read was The White Dragon probably 20years ago out of my dad's collection. I read it so many times I ended up trashing it. So when I found out a friend goes to DragonCon every year, a few years back I had them get a copy signed by Anne to give to my dad as a present. Unbeknownst to me, my friend also got me a copy of Dragonsdawn autographed as well. My favorite series is a tie between the Crystal Singer/Ballybran series and the Freedom/Botany series.

As for my general bio stuff, I live in southern Oregon, I'm basically a homesteader(not 'legally' but for all intents and purposes). I occasionally write (fan)fic and make fan videos. I like the Age of Empires, Final Fantasy, and Civilization games series. Final Fantasy X is my all-time favorite game. I'm not big on musicals, but I love Wicked. I have 8 cats...I've accepted my destiny as a crazy cat lady.

Yeah I can't remember if it was Civ 4 or Civ 5 but the system requirements were extreme, and my brother-in-law had a copy, and didn't recommend it. I'm only up to Civilization 3. I prefer the Civ 2 games Test of Time and Call to Power.

Civ 4 was the one I was playing, but I wore it out. Civ 5 was the one that crashed everything in sight. And once it had been installed on one computer you couldn't install it on anything else if you upgraded your hardware.

Hello all real life sucks ! There I said it. I have been real busy of late working on jewelry, working out @ the gym, joined the SCA in the Barony of Granite Mountain, on a sad note we lost dad a year ago this month so it has been tough.

Here is a pic of me in garb Yes I am holding a crossbow. I shot it for the first time ever on Sat. and in a tournament and took 4th place serious beginners luck here. Our shoot had a theme Dragons had invaded the barony. Well one of the dragons had he been real would never have had kids due to me! I am hoping to go by the name Canaan Falconer, Canaan being old Celtic for Protector of Honor!

Hello, new member, old fan here!

I'm Schisty; and yes, that's pronounced like the rock type - schist (as in, it's everywhere; some days on the internet, I certainly feel that way).

Um, I've been reading Anne McCaffrey's stuff since my mid-teens, and my faves are DoP, and the Talents (Pegasus and Tower). I usually do an annual re-read, but that fell off a few years ago with the problems I'm having with my arthritis and fibromyalgia - can't hold the books open anymore! I have them digitized, so I can sit a tablet in my lap or on a lap tray.

My hobbies include writing (fan fiction for the most part), and I play RPGs (table tops), collect toys (Monster High, Marvel and DC action figures, that kind of thing), make jewelry, and occasionally paint, and draw.

I'm glad this site is here, as I've been wanting to participate in this particular fandom, and found the Weyrs a bit intimidating. (Also didn't get online til 1999, for serious)

Anyway, Hi again! *waves*

Welcome back Sandi. I wish I could say I remember you, but I'm lucky to remember what we were talking about.

They say one of the signs of old age is you start forgetting things.

I don't remember the rest of the signs.

Hey guys and girls

I'm Rosalie and I've stumbled over this forum many times over the last 5 years. I'm Dutch and read the dutch Pern books since I was around 14 years old and I've loved Pern since. My goal was to get good enough at English to read McCaffrey in her native language and last year, after 6 years, I succeeded. I'm now trying to collect all the Pern books in hardcover as i can finally read all the books that were never translated to dutch. Recently I turned 21, and I'm working on my bachelor, with a triple major in Linguistics, Anthropology and Psychology. I'm really excited to talk to you all and hear your opinions on one of my favourite authors and get some more book recommendations.

Welcome and/en welkom, Rosalie!

Mis je nog (Engelstalige) boeken? Ik heb veel extra's maar kosten van verzending naar het buitenland laat de kopers meestal afhaken... binnen NL is het wel te doen.

Hello!! It's so good to be able to talk to you. Only last week I discovered you were also behind pern.nl, which i found on a separate browsing spree, so I've been literally reading your stuff for years now. I really admire your efforts as a collector. If I'll be able to get like half the amount of McCaffrey books you have acquired over a lifetime I'll die happily.

Hello Mara
My optician is already berating me for spending too much time behind a screen, so i've never really considered an E reader an option. also I feel like books have a high display value that you lose with ebooks. When people walk into my room they immediately bump into a book case, which holds my favorite books (currently lots of Tolkien and McCaffrey) and I really like it as a conversation starter when people come over for the first time. I also find myself drawn towards people's bookcases when I am invited for the first time. But e-readers are still incredible practical and it's a good way to lower the costs, especially since you never have to pay for shipping.

I'm still pretty new to McCaffrey's work, and i haven't read much of her work outside of Pern, only the first Acorna novel (which i loved) and the dutch translation of black horses for the king. Have you read anything you could recommend me?

Hi justbeingme . I have no room to ad more books, that's why I buy e books now. My absolute favorite is Pern, but I also like to read the Freedom books, Chrystalsinger en Talent books. At the moment I'm reading the Acorna series.

Hello!! It's so good to be able to talk to you. Only last week I discovered you were also behind pern.nl, which i found on a separate browsing spree, so I've been literally reading your stuff for years now. I really admire your efforts as a collector. If I'll be able to get like half the amount of McCaffrey books you have acquired over a lifetime I'll die happily.
Alright, it's official. You made me blush
