Miscellaneous Merchandise of Pern
and some general dragon merch...
Eventually I'll try to make this a
comprehensive list, for now just a few links to items you may not know about, which are
easily obtainable (if sometimes costly)!
last update 9/5/03
The artist who created the People of Pern with Anne McCaffrey has a wonderful
website, and through it sells prints from that book of Robinton, Menolly, Sebell,
Lessa, F'lar, Jaxom, and Sharra.
She no longer has any copies of People of Pern left to sell .
Dreams of Dragons
Artist Bernard Pearson was authorized to do a series of sculptures
based on Pern, which were then produced mostly by his son Tom.
Unfortunately, due to health reasons, further work from the line has been
cancelled and none of the original four items are left for purchase. The
four items that were produced are as follows: a small coffer depicting Anne's home
Dragonhold-Underhill (original price ~$100); Ramoth Hatching (original price
~$100); Ramoth in Flight (original price ~$600); and Menolly (original price
~$100). Perhaps someday these items will begin to appear on ebay, but I
expect the prices to be exorbitant.
Bernard's other site for work he's done for Terry Pratchett's Discworld, is
still up and running,
Cunning Artificer's Discworld Emporium, .
Knightsbridge Collectibles has worked with artist Todd Cameron Hamilton to create a pewter
pin based on the artwork he did for the cover of the Dragonlover's Guide to Pern.
I've got more details about it and a picture.
Fall 2000 - Todd is planning to release a line of prints of his
work from the DLG, click on the links above to learn more details.
Cross-stitch patterns from
Cathie's Cupboard and Crafts
6 designs: Dragonflight, Renedages of Pern, Girl Who Heard Dragons, Moreta,
White Dragon, and Weyrworld (All the Weyrs of Pern). Warning--designs are LARGE

the "Michael Whelan Fantasy" page.
Glass Onion Graphics Catalog (official
Michael Whelan Art)
Some Pern art is available as T-shirts, stickers, and bookplates--browse to
see which art. There's also a cool dragon mug (though not a Pern dragon) which
alters when hot.
Mile High Comics
When this comic book store has the Eclipse Comics three part adaptation of
Dragonflight in stock, you can order it from them online. Just search for "Dragonflight".
Also search for it on
eBay, as you'll often
find copies on auction.
The Forbidden Planet
is a chain of bookstores in the UK, selling science fiction books, comics, and related
merchandise. Reportedly they sell copies of the
Masterharper of Pern CD, and will
order them for customers.
Dragon's Toy Box
Holly makes beautiful shoulder dragons which make a good substitute for your own imaginary
fire-lizard. My Zoey who you'll see in my
2000 pictures was created by Holly.
Although Renee is not the only one out there making this style of latex shoulder
dragon, she does an exceptional job of coloring them in the classic Pernese
colors and adds faceted eyes. They sit very nicely on one's shoulder with
tail wrapped around your neck.
