Default New Pern Book's !

I see on Todd's site that His sister is working on a new Pern Book, Good news I say, Also after she completes it, She and Todd are to work on getting Anne's last book rewritten. New Pern stories on the horizon!

Wow! I look forward to it. I wonder if Gigi will keep to Anne's Pern better than Todd does? I can't read his books.

I still don't get what all the fuss is about concerning Todd's books. But yes, here's hoping Gigi takes us on a good journey to Pern.

I hope Gigi's better at it than Todd. (What the fuss is? It's like reading really bad fan fic by a thirteen-year-old girl. Canon-following PBeM Weyrs would have rejected the plots for being too melodramatic and unbelievable.) And I'm curious what Anne's last manuscript will turn out to be like, even reworked....

Agreed, Todd's writings are not, Well, good. But we do have something to look forward to. We can hope Gigi will be better.

I'm curious, but I don't know that I'm optimistic. But who knows? It could be an awesome addition to the series!
