Exclamation Pern Encyclopedia Googlized and Illustrated

Entire Pern Encyclopedia Googlized and illustrated!

Many knew it was coming and the happy moment of announcing the new html pages is here! The entire Pern Encyclopedia (actually, the entire Pern Museum & Archives site if you use the Google search facility that you'll now find on every encyclopedia page) is now searchable with the Google search interface (fast!). If you want you can even search the entire web for the same subject by a mere click on a radio-button.

On top of that, and no less important, comes the fact that I started to illustrate the encyclopedia! After the addition of the herbal pharmacopeia of Pern data (graciously admitted by Jennifer Quail aka Anareth/Anareth's Rider) I started illustrating her entries. After that I obtained permission from famous 'Pern artist' Robin Wood herself to use all of her artwork for both the Dragonriders of Pern games and the book The People of Pern, for the encyclopedia! For those of you who don't own these items this will be your chance to actually see the portraits of the people you love so much reading about for the first time.

Go to the Pern Museum & Archives

Go to the Pern Encyclopedia introduction page

It is looking very impressive. I love the google bit at the top.

I found a bad link though. I clicked on Anne Interviews and when I was on that page and clicked on encyclopodia I ended up in the old version.
