Overview

FOR THE GOOD OF THE PLANET?
OR THE DESTRUCTION OF AN ALLIANCE?

Several years after resolving a crisis of treachery on Doona, the Humans and Hrrubans encounter a new threat to their peaceful coexistence ...
The Gringgs are not the first alien visitors to Doona, but they are the first to offer friendship—and a proposal to partake in a trade agreement being drawn up by Doona’s leaders. Some are willing to trust the Gringgs; others question their true motives ... and a battle of diplomatic unrest ensues.
With Doona’s military forces at the ready, the planet once again falls under the dark shadow of uncertainty—and the threat of self-destruction ...


AN URGENT PLEA

“I’ll have to put the matter to the Amalgamated Worlds Administration on Earth before we can discuss this further,” Smitral was saying. “In the meantime, I am glad to see we continue with the spirit of cooperation that has characterized this world of Rraladoon for thirty years.”
“Pardon me,” Todd said, edging adroitly between the two diplomats, I see little evidence of cooperation in your faces but a lot of wariness. Speaker Hrrto, would you like to know what the Gringg asked for in our talks?”
“Reeve, no!” Markudian cried, outraged.
“Markudian, yes!” Todd said, rounding on him. “ I see this as a real test of Rraldoonan integrity, not Hayuman/Hrruban competition. Consider this,” he went on urgently, looking around the circle. “One of the reasons the Gringg thought we were a single species was the way we worked together. I was delighted by that because it showed we’d learned to trust each other. But the first stir of the pot from outside and we separate into distrustful—and greedy—strangers.” Todd stared at each one in turn, his glance gliding over Greene’s smug expression. “So let’s reinstate the honesty we have always used in dealings on Rraladoon.”

Meet the Author

Anne McCaffrey was born on April 1st, 1926, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at 1:30 p.m., in the hour of the Sheep, year of the Fire Tiger, sun sign Aries with Taurus rising and Leo mid-heaven (which seems to suggest an early interest in the stars).

Her parents were George Herbert McCaffrey, BA, MA PhD (Harvard), Colonel USA Army (retired), and Anne Dorothy McElroy McCaffrey, estate agent. She had two brothers: Hugh McCaffrey (deceased 1988), Major US Army, and Kevin Richard McCaffrey, still living.

Anne was educated at Stuart Hall in Staunton Virginia, Montclair High School in Montclair, New Jersey, and graduated cum laude from Radcliffe College, majoring in Slavonic Languages and Literatures.

Her working career included Liberty Music Shops and Helena Rubinstein (1947-1952). She married in 1950 and had three children: Alec Anthony, b. 1952, Todd, b.1956, and Georgeanne, b.1959.

Anne McCaffrey’s first story was published by Sam Moskowitz in Science Fiction + Magazine and her first novel was published by Ballantine Books in 1967. By the time the three children of her marriage were comfortably in school most of the day, she had already achieved enough success with short stories to devote full time to writing. Her first novel, Restoree, was written as a protest against the absurd and unrealistic portrayals of women in s-f novels in the 50s and early 60s. It is, however, in the handling of broader themes and the worlds of her imagination, particularly the two series The Ship Who Sang and the fourteen novels about the Dragonriders of Pern that Ms. McCaffrey’s talents as a story-teller are best displayed.

Jody Lynn Nye (born in 1957 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American science fiction writer. Jody is the author or co-author of approximately forty published novels and over one hundred short stories. Jody Lynn Nye has specialized in writing science fiction or fantasy action novels and humor. Her humorous series range from contemporary (“The Magic Touch” and “Mythology 101”) to military science fiction (“Strong Arm Tactics” and a new series beginning with “View from the Imperium”). On a third of her novels she has collaborated as a co-author or as the author of a sequel. She has been an instructor of the Fantasy Writing Workshop at Columbia College Chicago (2007) and teaches the annual Science Fiction Writing Workshop at DragonCon.

    Gripping nonfiction

    An historical account of Pavonian legends by any means. The Todd character is clearly pronounced in another series, however.
    Names were changed to protect the innocent.(literally).Accutely detailed for the accuracy of the information contained herein.These encounters are not as fictional as they may seem.The Archives described exist elsewhere.You have to have caught heaven to understand. The writer is close to my personal style and wittyness, especially with the same silly interstellar humor thrown in.
