[Dragonflight and Dragonquest] form the single award-winning novel The Dragonriders of Pern. McCaffrey is a fine builder of alien or future worlds and nowhere does she do better than in this story of the culture of Pern, a world where a symbiotic relationship exists between men and the great flying dragons, and how that culture rises to the greatest challenge it has to face.

The blarney's as high as an elephant's eye in this corny Irish number [The Kilternan Legacy]. Irene, skipping New Jersey with her teenage twins before her ex can stop her, has gone off to Dublin to check out great-aunt Teasey's legacy, thereby leaving behind one donnybrook for another…. It's wholesome entertainment all the way; the only character it lacks is a dog named Benji.
