Letter from Stephanie

Of course I love all the books ever done…think I have read them all but the Dragon’s Fire I now. I want to get the Dragon Harper…didn’t know about it! Great!
I was thinking last night, this may seem a bit too far fetched but since dragons can go between and even in time….there is always the possibility one with rider could end up on another planet, maybe save or bring back some great species….
wish we had magic to move our whales, dolphins, etc animals to another planet until we clean up this one!
Or just an adventure….the possibilities are endless.

Well, I’m glad to hear such a positive attitude! “Until we clean up this one!” Yep, we’ve got to clean up our planet and it’s nice to see that people are thinking that way.

As for going between planets, I figured that as space and time are one, a jump back in a year is equivalent to a jump of a light-year. That puts the maximum theoretical safe range of a space jump at about 25 light years (Lessa jumped over four hundred but she nearly died). The big problem is that one would have to know where one was going — and one couldn’t both jump back in time and in space (at least no more than a combined 25 light-years, say, 15 light-years in space and 10 years in time, for example).

But there are enough stories on Pern to last a while.

Also, no one has ever said whether or not more animals than dolphins were brought to Pern.
