Throwback Thursday - Anne McCaffrey

Anne McCaffrey is best known for her Pern series of fantasy novels. She melded wonderful characters inside a fantasy planet that had elements of science fiction. In Pern the dragons were used to protect the inhabitants from the deadly Threads that would fall from the skies periodically. McCaffrey's novels were poignant stories of human emotion and frailty, often expressed in the protagonist's relationship with her dragon.

Although McCaffrey wrote other novels it was her Pern universe that attracted me and held me. I never read one I didn't like and would not recommend.
