Default McCaffrey: a few US Pern mass market paperbacks

For my Pern Cover Variations collection I still need some of the latest Del Rey series paperbacks with the vertical band on the front cover.

I need very good or better copies (cover needs to be spotless, no stickers on front) of:
  • Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern
  • The Dolphins of Pern
Here's an examples of the type of cover I'm looking for:

I have duplicates of a few of these I think Hans, picked up by mistake as I forgot which I had...

Let's see, I have Renegades and All the Weyrs, mint condition.

JJ, I just want cheapest copies in the best possible condition as I only want them for the cover variation I can buy them new here but that would set me back at least $15 a piece as the prices of the US mmp's are much higher here than for you in the US.

Oh, Cheryl, that is great! Could you add them to the next shipment? And, if you haven't been to the bookstire for the new Harper Hall ones, buy the remaining one new? Sorry... I never even thought to ask you outringt if you had any spares

I would have to agree with you on that. By the way Hans I enjoyed your collection of dragon art at your site. But trying to find a few is hard. To the the creater of several of the cover of SvP, DB, and I ejoyed you cover collection. When is the Museum is going to be open? I like the Map Room and also all the Entyway and Room Maps too. I can get to his site, but can't leave him a Thank you note for all the work his done.

You can sign the guestbook, Ginny (big greem button).

More rooms of the Museum will open as soon as I have finished enough of the work on them to merit an opening Unfortunately real life intervenes too often.

That I understand.

I have in Paperback The Chronicles of Pern: First Fall on of the Images in the
Museum. By the way Hans could you post here and at the NKT a listing of the note ex. DD for DragonsDawn so others can use then in notes? I have come across The White Dragon TWD and a few more But not the who list?

So if we find something related to Pern a person post right? If not that OK too.

Ginny, I'll add a list of acronyms for the Pern books to this post listing all the Pern books. Look for it in the next day or so.

An acronym list would help me too. I always have to stop and list the book titles in my head to figure out which one it is. Thanks for asking Ginny.

Ginny, if you are referring to the Who's Who on Pern list. it won't be published . Alls the persons are in the Pern Encyclopedia but we won't publish the lists seperate yet.

I also have acronyms on my Library page Books & Publications (with each title) but they are dthe ones used in the Encyclopedia which are not necessarily the same ones everybody else use.

  • The Dolphins of Pern
  • Moreta : Dragonady of Pern
In the Del Rey mmp edition with the stripe on the front and in very good to fine condition.
