I loved Dragonsblood, and can hardly wait to see what comes next. You have raised a lot of questions in my mind about the watch-whers, and other issues. I can hardly wait to see how you will deal with them in the next book.
The relationship that existed between those in Wind Blossom’s time and Lorana came as a bit of an unexpected but pleasent supprise. However I think it sort of threw a monkey wrench in Wind Blossom’s trying to free future generations of her decendants of what she considered “the curse”. It sort of raises the question “Would all of Pern’s greatest heros and heroines some how find themselves decendants of the same line some where down the road?”
On another note, I was curious if you got to see Animal Planet’s special Sunday night “Dragons: A Fantasy Made Real”?
Their versions of what dragons might have looked like differed somewhat from what I imagine Pern’s Dragons would be like, but it was still impresive. Especially the mating flight clip, with their entwined dive ending in a blast of flame as they skim to safety at the last possible moment.
Here is the site if you would be interested in checking it out. They do have a few clips on it. http;//animal.dicovery.com/convergence/dragons/dragons.html

Thanks! I’m glad that you liked Dragonsblood and also glad that you’ve got questions about watch-whers.
Actually, Wind Blossom did suceed in freeing future generations from what she saw as “the curse.” Lorana only has an interest in biology, not on overriding obsession.
I don’t think that all the great heroes and heroines of Pern are descended from the same line or even from a mere few lines. I think heroines and heroes are the product more of their time and upbringing than of their genetics.
I don’t get cable, so I didn’t see the Animal Planet special. I’ve heard a lot about it. I’m glad to see that there’s such a huge amount of interest in dragons.
