Kadanzer Weyr is a shared-universe writing group set in the Tenth Pass of an alternate version of the world of Pern, as created by Anne McCaffrey in her "Dragonriders of Pern®" books. It is a creative environment in which Pern fans may write stories or create artwork set within an established continuity, using characters of their own creation, or where they may simply enjoy the work of others as a reader.
Kadanzer Weyr was founded and approved in 1994 as a printed fanzine group, with stories and artwork being distributed on paper. Although we have long since moved to an electronic format, we still strongly hold to the methods of the old-school fanzine fandom, with our contributors having their work edited for continuity and logic by our review team. If you're looking for a creative challenge with a Pernese flavor, or if you are just looking to find and enjoy stories and art set in an interpretation of Pern with rules justified by logic -- but still allowing plenty of room to maneuver -- then look no further!
