The Dragonlovers guide to pern


My sincere thanks and appreciation to all the following people for their many contributions: Marilyn and Harry Alm of Ista Weyr, New Orleans, for their kind help and awe-inspiring mathematics; to Dr. Jack Cohen; to Ed at the Adler Planetarium; Derval Diamond for inspiration; Robin Wood and her lovely portraiture; Sarah “Sis” Brooks for wonderful meals and information on weaving and wholistic healing; Jay Katz, who helped to make the guide possible; Todd Hamilton and Jim Clouse for extraordinary artwork; Lila and Cassandra for walking on the computer keys; Barbara Young, editrix; Chris Power for responding to an emergency cry for spinning wheel data; Terri Beckett and my mother for supportiveness; Julia Ecklar for setting Anne's words to music so beautifully; Todd and Gigi Johnson; and Anne McCaffrey (of course!), for whose patience, kindness, and encouragement I am forever grateful.


In the fall of 1987, Bill Fawcett, Todd Hamilton, Todd Johnson, and I spent ten days in Ann McCaffrey's living room in Dragonhold in Ireland , asking questions - an, in Todd Hamilton's case, making sketches under her direction. There was so much to learn. Pern is richly textured and convincingly three-dimensional.

While I was finishing up the last touches on this guide to Pern, I was temped to add to it. There was so much more I could have included. In the end, I decided to leave it as it is. I can't say enough in the space of one book about the heroic men and women who unite against the common menace of  Thread; or dragons, the gentle giant of Pern; or fire lizards, the Pernese answers to kittens. Anne McCaffey's wonderful books, the same ones that drew me to her word, will have to fill you in further on thee things I could only touch on. This is a companion volume to her work, intended to help you visualize the setting and background  for her chronicles. Todd an Jim louse have contributed over a hundred pieces of art, and Todd Johnson, Anne's son and pilot, has included a well-researched, definitive article on the Fighting Wings.

Just what kind of a place is Pern? It is a world where you can make of a dragon an intelligent, endlessly sympathetic friend who will share your every thought and hope, and on whose back you can really fly. It is a place where technology has lot its toehold and pollution never existed. To be sure, it suffers a terrifying menace in Thread, but between incursions, Pern is still a word for explorers. he frontiers haven't yet all been crossed. An the coffee there tastes as good it smells. It's almost too good to be true.
