      Anne McCaffery’s final resting place…When I first saw this image it was such a mix of sadness and  amazement: She has a beautiful dragon headstone… and notice who is on guard at her feet.

    Looks like she is needing another white mother.Nature is reclaiming that one.I can imagine the pride you felt Ms.Melody. That is simply awesome.

    Zexious,I have a spare copy of The Dragonriders of Pern if you would like it.lmk (3 books in one.)

    That is a beautiful plot. And who better to have a dragon guardian than the creator of Pern and its Dragons.

    I always loved that series.

    Looking for:
    "COSMIC SHIFT #1 ORIENTAL DRAGON" and "OCTOPUS TANUKI TEST PAINT #1"

    Maybe one day a smart person in Hollywood will figure out a way to bring Pern to life for us on the big screen.

    “Faerie Tale” by Raymond E. Feist?  https://www.amazon.com/Faerie-Tale-Raymond-Feist/dp/0553277839

    That is a good (somewhat weird) book.

    Loved all of Anne McCafferey’s Dragonrider books.  Have all of them.  Would recommend “The Lord of the Rings” (of course), Robin McKinley’s “The Blue Sword”, “The Hero and the Crown”, and “Sunshine”; Guy Gavriel Kaye’s “The Summer Tree”, “Wandering Fire”, and “The Darkest Road”; “The Riddle-Master of Hed” trilogy by Patricia McKillip; “The Last Unicorn” by Peter Beagle; Mercedes Lackey’s “Valdemar” series; “Game of Thrones” is great, but George RR Martin is WAY behind in ending the books; Jim Butchers “Harry Dresden” series; and his “Codex Alera” series; Barbara Hambly’s “Dragonbane”, and “Darwath” series; really enjoyed Patrick Rothfuss’s “Name of the Wind” and the “Wise Man’s Fear”, but he seems to be having a hard time finishing this series too; and nobody better than C.J. Cherryh at science fiction.  Her “Fortress”, “Morgaine”, “Chanur” and “Foreigner” series are wonderful and highly recommended.

    Always looking for Black and White Young Unicorns - especially with Feathers! !
    Would love to find the Summer Leaf Mother Pegasus, Tigerheart Mother Unicorn, Wild Troll Male Unicorn, Autumn Leaf Mother Dragon, Early Autumn Mother Dragon, any Test Paint Grand Unicorn or any GB Fantasy Baby Pegasus!
