Pern Bloodlines

Unless mentioned otherwise all books are paperbacks. The editions by Het Spectrum and De Boekerij are paperbacks in the Dutch sense of the word, meaning they have soft covers and are as large as what is called a “trade paperback” in the book trade. The one book published by Bruna (Het zingende schip) is a “mass market paperback” (American size), which we Dutch call a “pocket book”.
The only Anne McCaffrey hardcover available is the Dutch edition of Black Horses for the King, which is published by yet another publisher and presented as a juvenile book.
Also note the subtle difference between the titles (e.g.: Drakevlucht and Drakenvlucht, Drakerijders and Drakenrijders). These are not typos! Due to a language reform carried out in 1995 these are the grammatically correct titles!
