Default Reading The Books In Timeline Order?

I must admit I'm left with a rather bittersweet taste now that I've finished all of Anne's books and am onto the four books by Todd that I currently own. I can't really figure out what to expect since his version of Pern is not so great but hopefully if I come in with low expectations the books may turn out better for me.

Anyway I'll probably pick up the books again next year around this time again and instead I'd like to read the books in timeline order and like a list of the books as they happen in Pern's history. Please include Todd's books as well.

Hans has a great site that has all the info you're after.

Start with Dragonsdawn and Chronicles of Pern: First Fall then Todd's books then Moreta/Nerilka's Story then hit the 9th pass books. Haven't got all the titles on hand but that's a rough idea to start with.

Larith, you're out of order You should have read Todd's books earlier in the series

Seriously. I think you did the right thing. His books are so differnt I personally would recommend to read them totally seperate.


I think the link on Anne's website still links to my old reading order document. I've since made newer ince and here's a link to the latest version:

Click here to download Pern reading order 1.6

In this one only Dragonheart needs to be inserted between Dragon Harper and Dragonsblood.

think you have to add Dragonseye (red star rising) before Todd's books, otherwise it looks great until the 9th pass stuff.
