Dragons are keening...

...somewhere tonight: Anne McCaffrey dies at 85. Her books were among my earliest introductions to science fiction and fantasy (not to mention strong female characters therein) along with Sylvia Louise Engdahl, Ursula LeGuin, Sheri Tepper, James Tiptree, Tanith Lee, etc. (gosh, they're all women, imagine that). I'm sure her son is doing his best, but you can't really channel another writer, even if you were raised by them. I guess that's an argument for nature vs nurture.

Given the fabulous dragon in Harry Potter DH2 (and probably in Peter Jackson's Hobbit), dare I hope that someone will realize Dragonflight on film? Perhaps not -- Ramoth's mating flight might be a bit dodgy ratings-wise. But we can hope...

Played straight, yes, but a lot can be done with nudge-nudge wink-wink. I'd love to see this on screen, too.

Yes, one might be able to get away with an R rating through the use of suggestive innuendo and a lot of soft-focus ;) I have to admit, every time I read that I just go all woozy with the wish to see the bronze riders. Or Robinton -- I suffer from a serious weakness for politically savvy musicians who have a way with words ;)
