About this title

Synopsis:

A companion volume to Anne McCaffrey's Dragon series, this definite atlas of Pern includes detailed descriptions of the exploration, civilization, geography, and life-forms of the imaginary world

Review:

A much-needed update to the classic companion to Anne McCaffrey's canonical novels and numerous short stories about Pern, this book includes a few recipes, information about knitting patterns, Craft and Hold badges, and more. As a reference, it is marred by the lack of cross-referencing within the book, although there is an index, and by the lack of scales with the drawings of various animals and places. It will be invaluable to readers like me who can't recall just where they read that name before, or what Weyr a rider is from, or where that small Hold is, and it provides a useful overview of the high points of Pernese history--though it's no substitute for the pleasure of reading the stories!

Store Description

This business has been set up to sell my personsl library, since I have retired from a store-front bookstore. I am not open to the public but would consider a provate viewing on occasion. While I have books from many categories the greater percentage is fairy tales, fantasy and related art; a selection of signed editions and some military. In addition to this I will periodically list selections of Vintage Pagerbacks and related Pulp Culture items. My interests have always been varied and so is the collection.
