|The Library of the Pern Museum
holds many different hides, books and records for you to investigate or
peruse at your leisure. Some departments may be under construction but you
might want to try if the hyperlink works anyway because it could be possible that
you are allowed to snoop around while the curator is still setting up
You can either use the navigation bars above or the icons on the left of the descriptions to go where you want.
Any comments or suggestions
most important feature of the Library is the extensive Pern
Encyclopedia, which will eventually cover everything Pernese and also Pern related Terran
subjects. The PE is accessible from the Library as well as from the
department of Pern Books and Publications will offer you not only
a list of Pern books but also lists of Pern related works by
authors other than Anne McCaffrey and those of Pern Books which are translated
in other languages. It also offers links to sites with cover art.
Library provides lists of Pern books and related works he owns. You
might want to consult this department if you want to know to which books
and editions the references in the Pern Encyclopedia point.
section on Other Pern Resources holds all miscellaneous things that won't fit in the other
sections. It is certainly worth visiting though!
|The Pern Poetry section is not a collection of the poems found in the Pern Books. It does provide background information on both McCaffrey poems and Pernese ballads and saga's whenever possible and gives the text when legally permissible.||
What about a dragon's sex life?
Question: Do dragons ever mate for pleasure like humans? Outside of being proddy (in mating heat)....(This is sorta what I was trying to ask before, but wasn't sure how to ask.)Anne McCaffrey's answer: Dragons don't do it for anything but procreation. That's the way they are built sexually - as mares, coming into season while the stallion is almost always ready! They can get quite smarmy with each other if they are long term weyrmates, like Mnementh and Ramoth, having good neck wraps and nibbling itchy places on each other but once the fires are out, they're out.
|The Pern Quotes section is divided into subsections with quotes about Dragon and Threadfighting, Weyr Life and Hold Life. In addition you will find a section on General Quotes from the Pern books.|
|The section with
indexes currently holds an index on Dragonholder, Anne's
biography written by her son Todd.
|The section on Book Covers speaks for itself. It holds pictures of covers of Pern Books and stories. Only thumbnails, mind you, because for the most extensive collection and bigger pictures you will have to visit the site of my French friend François Labarbarie.|
|I finally put some Dutch content on my site. This section holds not only pictures of the Pern books that are (or were) translated into the Dutch language, it also gives you more information on those books.|
