    A recent sci fi book put me on a nostalgia kick for all the sci fi loves of my childhood This one could not endure the scrutiny All of McCaffrey s books suffer from her lionization of beautiful, talented people with special destinies who are permitted to save and sneer at the common folk The dragonrider book...
