iwerewolf: new here

*pokes head in and looks around* 

Hi, just joined today and thought I'd introduce myself. 

Erm, my name is Batwoman and my favorite color is clear with transparent polka dots. 

Ok seriously though....

I just read Restroree ( blame my sister for making me read it, remind me to hurt her for that) and I have to say I love it.  I finished it Monday and I've re-read chapter 17 and a few pages into 18 because I don't want it to end.  Why oh why was this the only book written?  and just as importantly, why isn't this going to be made into a movie? 

I ordered my own copy the other day and will be giving my sister's back next time I see her.  I'll most likely re-read it as soon as my copy arrives.  This was such a great book, I can't believe that woman ended it where she did and didn't write more.  that's so wrong. 

This could really keep going.  Dang I want more. 

I went on the search for fanfic (I was that desperate the other night) but didn't find any.  I'm not knocking fanfic, shoot, I write enough of my own, to me anything else written about it can only be done by the author.  That may sound strange but this has to be the only thing where I won't be able to enjoy anything written by fans nearly as much as if it were written by Anne herself.  That's not to say I wouldn't enjoy something written by someone else, say her son for instance, where she colaborated. 

So I've got a couple questions then, aside from the above, does anyone know of any Restoree fanfic out there?  Granted I just googled and didn't try other search engines.  But I've found there is very little out there about this book. 

ok so that was just 1 question. 

That's pretty much it.  I haven't read any of the other books, not that into dragons so the others don't sound apealing.  I'm more into sci-fi than fantasy.  Course I did read "Here There Be Dragons" but that was a Trek book.  anyway, as I was saying, I probably won't have much to say since I don't know the other books.

I haven't actually tried Restoree. It's one of the very few of McCaffrey's books I haven't got around to yet. I'm sure I'll try it eventually.

Can I point out that the Dragonriders of Pern is in fact science-fiction, not fantasy? It's often called fantasy because it's dragons, but technically it's sci-fi. It involves space travel, genetic manipulation (of the dragons) etc etc. It's a fantastic series.

Anyway, non-dragon related, I very much recommend Sassinak & sequels, the Freedom series, the Tower and the Hive series (with the prequel series I can't remember the name of), and, well, most of her books, really...

Read it! Seriously. One word of caution, because it's out of print, it's hard to find. While googling for any information on it last week I found it on amazon. I was curious about the copy I found for 8 cents. I decided to get that one even though I'm paying over 3 bucks in shipping. Oh well, the book itself was 8 cents. :)

The prequel to the Tower and the Hive Series is the Pegasus Series (To Ride Pegasus, Pegasus in Flight, Pegasus in Space). Technically, TatH is just a continuation of the Pegasus series.
