Talk:A Gift of Dragons

It's been quite some time since I've read it, but I don't believe that the short story "The Girl Who Heard Dragons" is incorporated into the novel The Renegades of Pern. Rather, IIRC, the novel takes place after the story, although it features some of the same characaters. --Apascover (talk) 23:46, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

"The Girl" takes place early in the history covered by Renegades. In a sense, the book covers "The Girl" from other perspectives, especially renegade Thella's and trader Jayge's. The girl Aramina's biography continues in the book. --P64 (talk) 20:16, 16 July 2011 (UTC)


In The Smallest Dragonboy section it says: "Keevan gets in a fight with Beterli, who says he will be dropped." In the book, Beterli implies that Keevan was dropped, but he never directly says it. --Bab (talk) 01:29, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Later history[edit]

The first three story capsules include information about what their characters (K'van, Aramina, Tenna) do afterward, in Pern novels. That should be presented separately such as with a paragraph break. --P64 (talk) 20:44, 10 June 2011

For now the later history is in footNotes. --P64 (talk) 14:54, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

Major revision[edit]

I have completed a major expansion and revision but limited to the lead, Infobox, layout, and publication history of the stories. —no attention to the content of the four story sections, except relegation of later history to footNotes (just above).

Beside Section headings, there are Template:Anchors for links to the story sections, using the primary nouns of their titles.

A Gift of Dragons#dragonboy; A Gift of Dragons#girl; A Gift of Dragons#runner; A Gift of Dragons#twain

Please preserve these if you eliminate the Sections —as I have done in The Chronicles of Pern: First Fall, inserting anchors such as First Fall#survey. --P64 (talk) 14:54, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
