McCaffrey in a different vein
on 13 January 2001
Having been a Pern fan for many years, I found this a very different work.
Though very much a space opera, I have bought the sequels as it is compulsive reading. However, great literature it isn't, and the inventiveness I much admired in McCaffrey's Dragon series is thin on the page.
