In the Dragon’s Eye is where I share the books I’ve got my acquisitive eye on: the ones I’m really excited about and hope to add to the hoard.
Dragonwriter: A Tribute to Anne McCaffrey and Pern, edited by Todd McCaffrey, is coming out on August 6, 2013, from Smart Pop books. Essayists include David Brin, Mercedes Lackey, Lois McMaster Bujold, Elizabeth Moon, David Gerrold, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and cover artist Michael Whelan, among others. The book will also contain 18 Pern sketches from Whelan’s archives.
This is definitely on my wish list. The Pern books were among my very favorites in high school and college. They got me through some of the tough times everyone goes through in those years. Lessa, Jaxom, and especially Menolly, were — are! — almost real people to me. I still reread the books every few years. (Hmm… it’s about time for a re-read!)
