I really don't like Stev Kimmer....but Ross Benden him I liked.
A fun quick, little read for fans of Pern...

After the first thread fall on Pern the colonists sent a plea for help. It took 49 years for help to arrive. This novella tells the story of that ship and its crew.

Eh, this was okay. I think Ms. McCaffrey can do no wrong for me. This was a fast and enjoyable short read. It was nice to read about thread in space.
Rescue Run
McCaffrey, Anne
how a few people were rescued from pern, and by tricking their rescuers left the colonist to face the trials of pern
Interesting small, short story about the "rescue" 49 years too late for Pern by the federation. Read a while ago. Date is approximate.
A distress call sent from Pern to earth has finally been answered, but what will they find? A short story or novella.
Kaylynn Johnsen
Fun addition to the Pern mythology. I had always wondered why no one from the rest of humanity ever showed up.
Read in the antho The Chronicles of Pern: First Fall.
