Descripción

First Edition in hardcover. Preceded by a paperback original, also published by Ballantine Books in 1971. The second installment in Anne McCaffrey's prolific and celebrated "The Dragon Riders of Pern" series. Notable for its shift towards a feminine perspective in science fiction, basically unheard of prior to McCaffrey's influence. "Dragonflight," the first novel in the series, earned McCaffrey both a Hugo Award and a Nebula Award, making her the first woman to win either.Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Quarter inch bruise to the front board. Jacket has a small production defect to the laminate on the spine panel. A very bright, attractive copy. N° de ref. de la librería 137430

Sinopsis:

On Pern, men breed and train great fire-breathing dragons to help them fight the deadly silver Threads that fall from the sky, destroying all life-forms, whenever the Red Star passes near

From the Publisher:

There are dragons all over Anne McCaffrey's house. Some she's bought, but many have been made for her by adoring fans and given to her as gifts. I don't make dragons, of course. But whenever circumstances allow, I do try to bring her American bacon, something she can't get easily in Ireland, and something which she has taught all her friends there to love, as well! I remember the first time I went to visit her, when she was still living in her old, much smaller but very homey, house. My husband and I arrived at the doorstep, and she immediately began bustling about, frying up some of the bacon we'd brought and sharing a lovely late breakfast with us before sending us off to the hotel for a nap. She made us dinner that night, too--the one and only time in my life that I've actually liked shrimp cocktail. Maybe that's because if you squint your eyes and look sideways, shrimp are kind of dragonlike, and I was eating them in the right company!
