Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

Cheryl, what I meant was that Anne's books in general were not Romance. I was aware she did write some in that genre, but I seriously doubt she was able to dumb her writing down to the normal level...

Re: Anne's english

Language is an interesting thing. We gather it as we learn. Our language is a window to our past. I'm sure mine is heavily influenced by Anne and her dear friend Isaac Asimov. So I probably wouldn't...

Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

I've heard of most of those, but never read them. But my guess is that they are a far cry from the trashy bodice ripper romances. I'm guessing that they are her typical story quality but heavy on the...

Re: When has Anne McCaffrey become answerable to Feminists?

Such interesting topics that pop up after laying dormant for so long.

I really believe that each world is the creation and property of the author and they write what they want. And delving into...

Re: New Pern Books !

If you read Moreta, Dragonsdawn, and All They Weyrs of Pern, runnerbeasts are horses. They were horses in DD through to the crossing north. Runnel knew all the runnerbeast lineages back to that same...

Re: Artist Robin Wood has died

I didn't meet her in person, but I did correspond with her several times and she was always wonderful. She will be missed greatly.

Re: Firelizard rising to mate

I believe I understand what you are asking. I think that such a person would get a bit aroused and it would be up to their personal standards if they wanted to ... provide some self relief ... or not.

Re: Are you an Anne McCaffrey collector?

Interesting that this topic came up as having a new post, but there isn't one.

But it leads me to add my comments on the topic.

Yes, I consider myself a collector. My collection is perhaps odd...

Re: What is happening

LOL... Windows 3.0. My first experience with Windows way back when. Since I found a source for Window 1 and 2. They ended up with Windows for Workgroups 3.11 which is the only one that makes sense if...

Re: Dragon size references

The lengths listed in Moreta were not there in the original Hardcover. I think they were added for the paperback. But there are dates for the passes, which were changed in All The Weyrs of Pern. So I...

Re: New Pern Books !

I found the book to be excellent. The description of Stupid with 6 legs was way off. And puting the Harper Hall inside Fort Hold instead of across from it as Anne clearly indicated was also off, but...

Carol Berg

I'm not sure how to go about describing this author. Considering the audience it is perhaps best to start by saying she is nothing like Anne McCaffrey. Anne tends to keep her characters in real...

Re: Favorite Character?

I had to vote for Robinson. But it was hard to choose because they all feel like family.

Re: Say Hello and Be Welcomed to the Library Café on MoM!

I've been posting in a Pern Facebook group and re-found this site when I was googling something Pern related.

I picked this screen name because I suspect that back when Masterhaper of Pern was...
