I have just read a synopsis of these books and they sound amazing! I was hoping someone can guide me on what book to start on and what order to read them in!
I am also looking for the correct order to read them in. Read some of them years ago when they were all not avalable in the library - and would like to read the series in order.
I've looked at varous sites that list the books, but Im not sure which way to read them - as they were published or chronological order. Anyone have any thoughts?
Here's a suggested list (published on Goodreads)
Hope that helps!
Hello there! Sorry for the late response.
First of all, please consider registering for a username so that we can get to know you. We really need more editors on this Wiki.
I highly recommend reading the books in the order in which they were written.
I originallyread them in pern chrono order, and am rereading them in publication order (more or less). Those are pretty much the two orders that people suggest.
Here is my list, should be roughly what is in the PDF above just with AL and publication dates, sorted by AL date:
The planet Rukbat 3 was surveyed about 200 years before settlement.
"The Survey: P.E.R.N." 190BL
These stories are set just before and during the First Pass, from landing on Pern until about fifty years after landing (0 to 50 AL).
"The Dolphins' Bell" 9AL
"The Ford of Red Hanrahan" 19AL
"The Second Weyr" 28AL
"Rescue Run" 58AL read oct 2012
Just before and during the Second Pass, about 250 years after landing.
Just before and during the Third Pass, about 500 years after landing.
Late in the Sixth Pass, about 1550 years after landing.
What do you think?
