islay_eggs: A question

Hi ya Folks,

I just found this journal today .... Love Anne McCaffrey books been reading them since ..well forever!!!
My Mum & Dad both read her books and they have always been around the house.

The question is about "Restoree" (noticed it was mostly PERN on the other entries).

Harlan address to Sara changes in the middle of the novel from "My Dear Lady" to "Dear My Lady" and it kinda stuck out as I can't seem to figure out the full reasoning. Sorry I don't think I explained that very well. Just wanted to know why?

Ok here's a quick poll that just for curiosity's sake:

If you could choose one character from Anne McCaffrey's books who would it be?

Just thought that would be a fun question. My answer is Menolly mostly because Dragonsinger is one of my favorite books and I just loooove the character.

I hope people don’t mind me going a bit off topic, but how do people find Todd’s writing. Both his books with his mother, and as Stand alone pieces themselves?

glenraven: Question about a book

I was browsing through my fav used bookstore today for a good pick me up, today was a no go in the job looking department, and came across a McCaffrey book that I'd never seen or heard of before. I've never seen this one in Barnes and Noble, Borders, or Books a Million, and when looking at Amazon (I have hard to find books by her on my wishlist) I haven't come across it. It could be I didn't look through enough of them but at some point you get a list of links with them that makes no sense and you know the search is over, ya know.

anyways, it's called The Coelura. I know it's not a part of Pern because it's scifi. it's actually a small hardback book and it has illustrations in it. looks more like a short story kinda thing. The story was first published in 83, and this version with the pictures was done in 87, and that looks like it might be it. It's about Lady Cassia and a planet called Demeathorn.

I was wondering if anyone had heard or read this story. I was like 1 when it first came out LOL, so I am sure there are some members who would know much more about it than me :) But is it part of one of her many scifi-fantasy series? or was this just a one off she did for fun or something? Cause I don't remember anything from this being in her short story book, though it has been a while since I read that one. It looks really neat so if its part of a bigger series I wanna know so I can go and get the others LOL.

Well, The People of Pern finally arrived. It's quite bizarre really, most of the people are not how I expected them to look. I recommend getting the book if you can find it. But it is mostly the era of F'lar and Lessa, and also Moreta's characters.

bogfrog: McCaffrey books for trade or sale!

Hey, McCaffrey fans!

I have some extra Anne McCaffrey books (mostly Pern) that I would like to trade or sell. The list is here.

Don't worry, these are duplicates to books already in my collection -- I would never sell my only copy of one of Anne's novels!

ytak: Name meanings

I know that Ms. McCaffrey creates a lot of the names (especially in the Dragonriders of Pern) in her books but I discovered that Damia is a real name. According to a babynamesworld.com, Damia means 'Goddess of Forces of Nature.' See here for the info.
If that name choice wasn't intentional, I'll drink a shot of Tabasco sauce.

Does anyone else know any other names and their meanings?

Ok, whilst I'm impatiently waiting for The People of Pern to arrive (I know it's a present for my mum but I can at least look at it first!), I was wondering who everyone's favourite character is from any of Anne's Worlds? If you had to pick just one of her characters only, who would it be? Edited to add.... and why is this person your favourite?
