Here there be dragons . . . Since the first unforgettable appearance of Pern's remarkable dragons and their brave human riders in the novella Weyr Search, winner of a Hugo award in 1968, millions of readers the world over have thrilled to Anne McCaffrey's bestselling saga of men, women, and dragons united against the deadly fall of Thread. Thanks to McCaffrey's bold and generous imagination, we have known what it is to fly. We have touched the fiery hearts and minds of the great fighting dragons, witnessed their passionate loves and violent hates, and felt the deep, unbreakable bonds that join them to their riders. McCaffrey's creative magic has made Pern real--a home to hold in the heart. Its inhabitants are more than characters in a book. They are family. Now a member of Anne McCaffrey's family--her son Todd--gives us a candid and inspiring glimpse into the mind and soul of one of the greatest science fiction and fantasy writers of all time--an extraordinary woman who has influenced a generation of writers and readers and left an indelible mark on the field. From Anne's birth on April Fool's Day in 1926, her girlhood encounters with the strange power of second sight that gifts the McCaffreys, her trailblazing efforts to balance the roles of wife, mother, and writer in the turbulent sixties, through a painful divorce and the years of success and acclaim that followed, Dragonholder is a labor of love that will enrich every reader's appreciation of the world of Pern . . . and its equally unique creator.… (més)

This tale reads like a who's who in science fiction/fantasy legends. Filled with interesting anecdotes about Anne McCaffrey and her home life, it illustrates what a magical life she lead. ( )

Anne McCaffrey is the author of the Dragon Riders of Pern science fiction series. As related by her middle child, Todd, who has also collaborated with her on Pern books, this is Anne's story of how she became a writer and everything else in between. Told in an easy narrative and with plenty of antics, readers will breeze through this book and enjoy every minute of it. ( )

Dragonholder is a pleasant, chatty biography of his mother from Anne McCaffrey's younger son. The book is a bit awkward in places, most notably when Mr. McCaffrey uses nicknames like "our Anne" to refer to his mother rather than simply using mum, mom, or whatever term of endearment he uses in private life. It’s a shame a good editor didn’t step in and clean it up a bit. Still, Dragonholder is nice, quick read for the avid McCaffrey fan. ( )

To Betty and Ian Ballantine, whose kindness, faith, and perseverance did more than give us the dragons of Pern-they kept them flying.
