Nothing wrong with reading the Pern books for the third time or the sixth time or the seventeenth time! Welcome to MoM, OnyxDrake!

Thank you! There's just something about Anne's style that I find very inviting. She settles and gets right into telling a story – and I think it's because it's easy to identify with her protagonists who all have to overcome great odds to get what they want.

Greetings and welcome, Everest,
you've found a site that's truly blest
by many sweet and charmant peeps
you might desire to take and keeps.

And, so, before these quatrains pass,
I'll stand, and I shall lift my glass

Hello.... I guess I may be the newest member? I've been known as F'Lessa here in my part of the woods for the past 10 years but apparently I'm not the only one in existance cos I couldn't get that name when I tried to register. All my other aliases I tried for were in use too. boo hoo so I'm now stumpedbymyname! LOL

My favorite worlds are PERN and the Nine Star League. I started with the White Dragon and moved on to read all the dragon books I could get my hands on. I think I picked up the Rowan because it was the first McCaffrey book I could reach after I finished the dragon books I had on hand.

I have always been fascinated by powers of the mind such as empathy, telepaths and telekinesis primarily. I love how these books combine all of those powers.

Welcome, Stumped!

We actually have the main character names banned here, because we don't want arguments or jealousies over names, and because it gets weird trying to have a discussion about Lessa the character with one or more members going by the name Lessa or a variation thereof.

Ahhhhh that explains a lot. So I s'pose I wouldn't be able to post a picture of my old horsie with the same name? She was my golden queen, long gone these past 6 years.

OK, so I just might leave my name as it is then or possibly come up with something else. Apparently there is a way to change it if I decide too?

Send a PM to me or Hans to request a name change, or post a request in the Info Desk forum.

No problem posting a picture of your horse, no matter her name. It's just usernames that are restricted.

Welcom Onyx, Everest and Stumped.
I Do not write... I can rarely put a sentence together and can barely spell.
However, I love Anne McCaffrey.I own and have read all her books and still have not found one I do not like. I love this site and feel welcome even with my gramical defects. (yup...thats probibley not a word) I hope that all of you feel the same. I will continue to give the gift of anne's worlds to my children and grandchildren. I loved the Doona series as all 4 of my kids have been just like Todd.
