She's an amazing character. I'm currently in the middle of Dragonsdawn, and loving it. It's so fascinating how the dragons were created in the first place. Not to mention... I'VE FIGURED OUT THE PATH OF THREADFALL! It's actually relatively simple. It falls in a southwesterly drift everytime, and, more importantly, I know the exact path of Thread as it falls across the planet. Here, I'll put my notes up:

First Fall- Lemos: Igen Weyr combating
Second Fall- Igen Hold, Ista Hold: Igen Weyr and Ista Weyr combating
Third Fall- Nabol, Ruatha: High Reaches Weyr and Fort Weyr combating
Fourth Fall- Fort Hold: Fort Weyr combating
Fifth Fall- Southern Boll: Fort Weyr combating
Sixth Fall- Tillek: High Reaches combating
Seventh Fall- Bitra, maybe Lemos and Benden Hold: Benden Weyr combating
Eighth Fall- Half Circle Sea Hold, Keroon, maybe Igen Hold and Crom: Benden Weyr and High Reaches Weyr combating
Ninth Fall- Nerat Hold, Telgar Hold, Cove Hold, Nabol Hold: Telgar Weyr, Ista Weyr, and Southern Weyr combating
Tenth Fall- High Reaches Hold, Ista Hold: High Reaches Weyr and Ista Weyr combating
Eleventh Fall- Ruatha, Fort Hold, Southern Hold: Fort Weyr and Southern Weyr combating

Now, Threadfall runs for 375 miles and is 50 miles wide. It proceeds south approximately 150 miles at the beginning of each new series, and the next leading edge for each series is separated to the ssouth by 525 miles and to the west by 275 miles. So there you have it. The Threadfall formula.

Come on, guys. We had such a great topic here. Let's get it going again. Hey, has anyone read the new Pern novel by Todd yet? I'm really anxious to get to it. Does it occur during the 2nd Long Interval? I heard it was.

For those who know me, it's no secret how much I enjoyed and enjoy the series Dragonriders of Pern. Browsing over the internet I found a site which lists the books in order of publication date as well as the books and titles related to specific books.

It's a great guide for anyone who wants to re-read the series. Check it out!!!!!

LOL!!! If I am to be honest, and fearing to be rude, I really have no interest in the path of Threadfall. I am more into the lives of the characters, their daily struggles, and such.

Though if they moved the orbit of the Red Star, what else would there be to make a storyline about????

I don't know. I'm sure the McCaffrey's will figure something out.

I know we're more interested in the stuggles of the characters, but it's still pretty neat to look at, and know where Thread is falling and when.

Post Re: The Dragonriders of Pern discussion group *spoilers*
Okay, I have to ask. Can anybody tell me the name of the book her son wrote? It's been forever since I posted in here... It's been forever since I read these books to... Lol, at one time I had the timeline of the books figured out, but I can't remember it... High school is no fun... And I'm about to be a junior... And it's almost 3 in the morning... I think I need to go to bed.

Anywho, if you can tell me the name, it would be much appreciated. Although you'll probably have to pm me, 'cause I hardly ever check this topic anymore.

SUGGESTED READING ORDERS OF BOOKS AND STORIES
IN ANNE MCCAFFREY’S PERN SERIES
Fans often ask for advice as to the order in which to read the books in the popular Dragonriders of Pern© series. Anne McCaffrey herself suggests you should read them in the order in which they were published. For most of the series written by Anne the chronological order is also the
publication order. But the Pern Series is the notable exception. For those of you who prefer to read
(or re-read) the Pern Series in chronological or story line order we are therefore including a second, chronological list. However, this list cannot give a pure chronological order because that is an impossibility – some of the books and stories take place during the same time period. For
example, a book like The Renegades of Pern spans a long period of Pern’s history in the run up to and during the Ninth Pass. As such, it runs parallel to several other books in the series.

1. Pern Books and Stories in order of Publication
 Dragonflight (1968)
The short stories “Weyr Search” and “Dragonrider” are incorporated in this book.
 Dragonquest (1971)

 The Renegades Of Pern (1989)
 All The Weyrs Of Pern (1991)
 The Chronicles of Pern: First Fall (1993)
The earlier publications “Rescue Run” (1991) and “The Dolphin’s Bell” (1993) are incorporated in this book.
 The Girl Who Heard Dragons, in: The Girl Who Heard Dragons (1996)
 Dragonseye, published as Red Star Rising in the UK (1996)
 The Masterharper Of Pern (1998)
 Runner Of Pern, in: Legends (anthology edited by Robert Silverberg) (1999)
 The Skies of Pern (2001)
 A Gift of Dragons (2002) The short story “Ever the Twain” is incorporated in this book.

Hmmm, I'm going to have to find a bookstore with all of these books in it... A lot of them I hadn't even heard of... I didn't think she had wrote that many already...
