Lovely story on Renaissance of forgotten technologies, new guilds, culture shock on the conservatives trying to stay in power, neutral AI & finally getting rid of the threads within period of time.
Colonists somewhat surprised original genetically modified dragons were puny even to the White Dragon from AI records.

This edition has many obscure and convoluted expressions which I enjoy learning, and then find, many times, unnecessary. But this one, 'to propitiate you, AIVAS', is totally out of place, since it has a religious connotation, and all throughout all the books, the author has taken care to keep religion out of Pern's social structure. Being an atheist, I appreciated that. So how would a central character come by this term? It's hard to believe that, with all those eyes on the copy, everyone missed it.

I love the book, but this is awful.

This file is bad. Page 6 repeats at random intervals and other pages are missing

Thread, a voracious space bourne organisms, has fallen on Pern for time immemorial. Now the dragonriders, with the help of the AVIS will solve the problem forever.
