The Curse of Avriet: I don't remember if I mentioned this before, but I have worked out who created the curse and why it was cast.

"Vacation Plans" response story: (For StarRise Weyr) Sorry, Anna, but I was in Fort 9 for far too long. I just cannot write a little vignette thing; all my Pern stuff has to be written as if Julia Ecklar were stil my editor. :) It's a habit I think I'm best off not breaking.

Note to self: Dedicate this book to Sondra Monteil, my former boss.
