The other day I mentioned that I was going to start reading the Pern books again. I was going to type more about the series, but apparently I got distracted or something. :)

Anne McCaffrey started the Pern series in 1968... A few years after that, I was born! And then a couple decades after that, I grew up and discovered her books.

Anne McCaffrey kept writing books that entire time, and then her son, Todd, helped her write some books, and he's now continuing the series alone. Anne died 21 nov 2011.

The stories are both science fiction and fantasy. It's in the future and it's about humans on another planet! There is no technology, so it's not really science fiction. There are dragons! There is no magic, so it's not really fantasy. heh.

Anne McCaffrey was the first woman to win a Nebula, and she was also the first woman science fiction author on the New York Times Best Seller list.

I enjoy the series. The first three books are definitely among my favorite books of all time. and I hope that Todd is doing it justice. (I'm currently reading his first book, Dragon's Kin, and, I remembered correctly, it's not that great.)
