Decision At Doona by McCaffrey, Anne

­could locate a crook on the lam as easily as she could find a missing pair of glasses, and she could also drive the Police Commissioner right up the wall. Mutual cooperation will breed mutual respect and bring blessings to all. This first one primarily stars Ken Reeve. The Terrans needed it as an overspill from the hysterical crowding of Earth, a place to breathe and move without restrictions. The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included.

Decision at Doona (Doona, #1) by Anne McCaffrey

There's even the period lack of characterization. So the Terran government made a law—no further contact would be allowed with sentient creatures anywhere in the galaxy. There is one edge nick to the rear foredge. It began to look as if the colony, cut off from Earth and lacking the resources to combat the menace, was doomed. Two hundred years earlier, a botched first contact situation led to an entire alien species, the Siwannese, committing suicide. The text pages are clean and bright. Instead she just uses the computer tapes and printouts of the sixties--something that's decidedly quaint sounding even now, much less in a future set hundreds of years from now.

Visit the author's website at www. Dated, of course, like watching old Star Trek episodes, and technology of today far outstrips anything imagined back in the 60s. That might be my favorite part of the book. It's a good read that the entire family can enjoy from the moment their old enough to understand basic concepts until they are grandparents with children crowded on the couch, reading for the enjoyment of reading. Adherence to rules absolutely also can get you into trouble so when things get out of control you have to punt and do the best you can. Buy with confidence, excellent customer service!. Light edgewear, former owner's name in ink to front fly page, mild age-toning to pages, otherwise a solid copy, clean throughout.

Or learn, for the first time in history, how to coexist with an alien race. I can feel the dragons humming. Signed and inscribed by the author to title page. Her pedigree, skills, and intelligence, as well as the close rapport she has with her human, Janina, make her the most valuable crew member aboard the Molly Daise. I mean, children do learn language quickly, but that was a little silly unless we were going to go down a telepathy storyline I hoped we were, we did not. Earth is enormously overcrowded, so Ken is excited to learn that Doona, a planet uninhabited by intelligent sentient beings, has been discovered and that he and his family have been picked to be some of the first colonists. No quibble refund if not completely satisfied.

Then there was a much smaller problem where the characters seemed not to quite fit there backstory at times, but I could forgive. 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. You'll have to check for that answer on your own. Chessie is kidnapped—er, catnapped—from Dr. Their daughter appears only as a worried babysitter for the son, Todd who is a bit of a star toward the latter part of the book. Strangely, there aren't any psychics at all, which is pretty rare for an early McCaffrey.

She needs a medal for not suffocating Todd much earlier, the little shit. Todd violated societal norms by being loud, energetic, and occasionally aggressive. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. And Aldrep now considering the possibility that the Hurrubans might actually be real - and worrying what these aliens will think of the human's action. The late 60's were a terrible time in race relations. The Hrrubans had all the necessary materials, technology, and knowledge, so the bridge-building was really more of a cross-species togetherness activity than anything. What happens when two sentient species find themselves colonizing the same planet? Anne McCaffrey lives in a house of her own design, Dragonhold-Underhill, in County Wicklow, Ireland.

It's not her best book, but I have read quite a few worse. Therefore, the newly discovered planet Doona could only be colonized if an official Space Department Spacedep survey established that the planet was both habitable and uninhabited. For grading accuracy books are photographed without a protective book cover. Nobody wants to go back to overcrowded Earth, but the Non-Cohabitation Principle is serious business. That made this different from her Dragon Rider Pern Series.

Text block clean, with only a hit of toning to edges. But Spaceship had made a mistake—Doona was inhabited. That's her adventure in the new world. There are a few interestingly named plants that can be harmful and the trees smell cinnamoney. He wants to be loud when rules call for quiet.

Decision At Doona, McCaffrey, Anne, Used; Good Book

decision at doona mccaffrey anne

When I was hunting for a book published in a specific year for a reading challenge I came across Decision at Doona and realized I never had read this one. Those days are long past. . But it's kinda fun t I've never really liked McCaffrey's science fiction stories. Her working career included Liberty Music Shops and Helena Rubinstein 1947-1952. Early on, I suspected that there was more going on with the Hrrubans than they were letting on.
