here there be dragons

I used to devour Anne McCaffrey’s Pern novels. She created a world so rich in story and mythology that the possibilities seemed endless. It’s been quite a few years since I’d read any, so I picked up a couple she’d co-authored with her son Todd. I was very pleasantly surprised. The development was no less rich than I’d remembered, and even the minor character seemed so real that an entire book could be written about them. And I enjoyed the common theme of the journey of self-discovery.

I read  Dragon’s Kin  2003 (292 pgs) and Dragon’s Fire  2006 (366 pgs)

  1. I have never heard of these; I read a half dozen of the Pern books when I was younger. I didn’t realize she’d co-authored some. I’ll have to give these a look.
