A science fiction classic from a master of the genre

When AIVAS - the Artificial Intelligence Voice Address System - was first discovered at Landing, the enture planet of Pern was awed at the knowledge it divulged. All the history of the people of Pern was there. Dragonholders, Lord Holders and Craftmasters crowded into the tiny inner room to learn the secrets of their beginnings. Ana AIVAS had other gifts to offer - stored information of old crafts that had been forgotten, of medicine, music and technology.

But the greatest promise AIVAS offered was the chance to rid Pern of Thread forever. All the great ones of Pern began the long and arduous task of learning just how to operate the incredible plan - a plan of such daring and epic proportions that both dragons and riders would be put at risk.

About the Author

Anne Inez McCaffrey (April 1, 1926-November 21, 2011) was an American-born Irish writer, best known for the Dragonriders of Pern science fiction series. Early in McCaffrey's forty-six-year career as a writer, she became the first woman to win a Hugo Award for fiction and the first to win a Nebula Award. Her 1978 novel The White Dragon became one of the first science fiction books to appear on the New York Times bestseller list. In 1999 she was the recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award, honoring her lifetime contribution to writing for teens. In 2005 the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America named McCaffrey its twenty-second Grand Master, an annual award to living writers of fantasy and science fiction. She was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2006.



A great favourite of mine, I am thrilled to find I can access these books, that hooked me decades ago, on Booktopia. Its a huge treat to rediscover something decades later and find its still a benchmark :)



Great culmination to the dragon riders series


The book seems to wrap up the series a little too neatly. Well written easy read that engages you in the world of the dragon riders, but still leaves you wanting to continue exploring the southern continent on dragon back & evolving a new society once the threat of thread fall is gone
