Letter from Samantha

Todd;

I was wondering if you or your mum were planning on working on a book that takes place after “All The Weyr’s of Pern?” As that book was not finished… I saw at least 3 things that still needed to be addressed:

– I have a hard time believing that F’lessan and Galanth will never be able to fly again. “Dragon’s are meant to Fly when Thread is in the Sky.”

– The idea of Toric getting away with all that he is doing and has done makes me angry and I would love to see him get his…

– and right now I can’t think for the life of me what the 3rd was! Ugggghhhh!

My own mum got me into Pern a year ago and I didn’t think I would like and now I am truly hooked to all things Pern.

Your own writing is wonderful and carries the same flavor as your mum’s. Keep up the great work.

I am trying to write my own book and know how hard it can be. I have been writing it for the past 8 years not easy when raising a family, I am almost done with it though, even if I never get it published I feel that I had to do this for the people in my book. They truly come alive.

Well, I am rambling. I was just wondering what was going to happen during the Last Pass of the Red Planet.

Samantha 🙂

Samantha,

You mean “The Skies of Pern,” not “All the Weyrs of Pern,” don’t you? Either way, the answer is that I don’t know whether there will be another book. I think that really depends upon Mum.

I’m glad that you’re writing. I understand what you mean about having to do it for the people in your book. That sounds quite promising! Finish it, send it out, start another.

Mum didn’t really get into writing until all her children were in school and then she hired a next-door neighbor to baby-sit after school was out so that she got several hours a day of uninterrupted writing time.

When Mum can’t remember something she’ll say, “Data retrieval error.”

Cheers,
Todd
