Is there a Pern Timeline somewhere? I'm not looking for what books are in what order, but more an order of important events spread out visually?

It could be considered a timeline of sorts Lily.

I know one or two peeps who tend to read the books in publishing order.

I see eight posts in this thread
This is No.9
Two people have made reference to me

BUT: I can't see any posts from me??? I'm sure I have posted though, time/reading lines are an interest I have.

Can anyone else see posts from me?
Will they mysteriously return next time???

Watch this space!!

That could be it. Either that, or being distracted by the TV program I was half watching when I Posted that.

Sorry Hans.

Rianne - I think I meant I was going to continue trying to put the time line in order. Unfortunately I have not looked further at it again, I believe Anne herself admits to confusion with dates.
