I just read an old post and recognized it -- mine from almost two years ago. One of the things I like about the McCaffreys' writing is simply this: Anything which is not fiction due to the story line is correct. In other words, a cow has four stomachs, a man (or woman) has one and the speed of light is approx 186,000 miles per second. I love this one -- a light year is a measure of distance not speed. I admit I haven't kept up with things relating to Pern -- Whatever happened to the movie? I wanted James Earl Jones to play Robinton. He has a wonderful voice and his portrayal of Darth Vader (voice) was spectacular. I wish Angela Lansbury could fit in somewhere -- her voice is also something to hear. She did the teapot in BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. May Irish Blessings Be Upon You and Yours. May Your Enemies Be Afflicted With Itching Without the Benefit of Scratching. (You probably recognize that curse -- I tried to paraphrase an old Irish one.)

I've loved Anne's pern books since first reading them in the 1960'S.
But in the last few years they have become stagnated. with the exception of new life breathed into the series by the finding the buried computer.
What's needed now is an outside protagonist. Mabye a spaceship crash-lands on pern bring news of an enemy of human-kind comming their way.

I have read just about every Anne McCaffrey book written and I love them all. In addition to McCaffrey, I have read dozens of other Scifi/Fantasy authors and have liked some and disliked others. I don't understand how, with all of the books available, anyone could read 6 books in a row that they didn't like. If I don't like a book I have no problem putting it down halfway through even if it was recommended to me by a friend. BTW, I'm 30.

i never understnd why folks who don't like a subject go that blog or message board to comment. are they just looking for an argument? are they bored? or are they just plainmean and wan to trash someone's beliefs or favorite star or author?
i just don't get it. the only time i post ona site is becuse the subjectintrests me. i mean i would not even search for an author if i hated them, what's the point?
they remind me of folks who create computer viruses.

As long as we're discussing ages, I'm 65. I agree with the posters who recommended that if you don't like an author, don't read their books. You don't need to make rather stupid remarks as the only thing you are proving is your lack of good sense. You also might remember something from the Bible which begins "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." I have a number of authors I like, Anne being one, but I simply don't read the books written by those authors I do not like or find uninteresting. I will recommend authors I like but I will not claim an author I do not like is a bad writer. Afterall, someone must think they have merit or they wouldn't be published -- unless it were on the old "vanity" press. They certainly are better writers than I, or perhaps they're simply braver. Even if I don't like their writing, I must admit they deserve respect.

I agree with you Donnie. I love Anne's Pern series and the "thread" that holds all the books together!! Having said that, I am 60 and have introduced Anne to my 14 year old granddaughter, and she is becoming an avid reader of Anne's Power series and the subsequent Maelstrom, Changlings continuation. As you said, if you don't like them, don't read them. Personally, I do read them and have met Anne personally. She is witty and charming - I RECOMMEND ALL ANN McCAFFREY'S books!!
