Dragonflight and the Extinction of the Bodice Ripper

I read Dragonflight at about the right age for it…I think I was thirteen. In many ways it has not aged well, although Pern fandom is alive, well, very queer and producing reams upon reams of fanfiction. Most of which is written to fix the, uh, problems with Pern.

I just listened to a podcast where three women reviewed Dragonflight and it was almost funny.
