It doesn't matter that much, Edith, dear. It helps us get a grip on things much better, and we could feasibly field questions about the first three books.

However, The White Dragon I feel is a more direct continuation of the story. Dragonflight, Dragonquest and The White Dragon fit together, as do Dragonsong, Dragonsinger and Dragondrums, and the best way to read throught them is to stick to those groups.

I agree with c_ris. TWD continues more logically from DF and DQ, while Dsong/Singer/Drums all flow a bit better together.

I agree too. It seems a better way of looking at them. Personally I have two hardback books that set them that way. One is titled Dragonriders of Pern and contains Dragonflight, Dragonquest and The White Dragon and the other is called The Harper Hall of Pern (guess what's in that one!)

So, what's coming after the DRoP trilogy? The Harper halls? Or is it going in publication order? Or is it going to be non-Pern? Just wondering...

Unfortunately, I've been too busy to think up topics, and even then I seem to be too serious and detailed for most people.
