More than twenty-five years ago, the first Humans had set foot on Doona and had found a beautiful, unspoiled planet ... but they had also found that they were not alone there.

Their early survey had completely ignored or missed the fact that the planet was already settled by the alien feline-like Hrrubans. The ensuing conflict led to the historic Decision at Doona--a social experiment in coexistence between two races, one that had succeeded for a quarter of a century.

Now, that contract between the Humans and the Hrrubans has run out and is up for renewal. Everything that the partners have worked for--the peaceful future of their dreams, the delicate cross-species alliance itself--is at peril and at stake, and could ultimately be lost forever.

About 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.
