Dragonsong

November 30, 2011

I remember the incident – venturing out of the little kids’ section of Whittier Public Library into the real kids’ section, where they had books with chapters and stuff in them.  I picked a book out of the shelf that looked interesting.  It had a crinkly plastic jacket and there was a dragon on the cover.  Dragonsong.  That sounded cool.

And so I was introduced to the world of Pern.  The story was about Menolly, who wanted to be a dragonsinger even though her freehold wouldn’t let her, but I confess I don’t remember much about the plot.  That world!  That creepy-ass Threadfall.  Those dragons who could teleport Between.  And the dragonriders who could telepathically communicate with them and keep the world safe.

Anne McCaffrey, you introduced me to fantasy novels.

    Even though technically it’s SciFi.

    Yeah, but you don’t find that out until later in the series!
