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.
