I have read all of Anne McCaffrey's books (and Todd's Pern ones) and still have many of them in my possession (actually in my son's) and the later ones I have been borrowing from the library (space problems, you know).
I have all the original Pern books - I bought the first one by Todd, but was disappointed and probably won't try any more. I'm afraid Anne too had become very formulaic by the end.
I do reread them occasionally and still enjoy them. The overall 'design' of the history of Pern is, I think, excellent. It does puzzle me that some people call it fantasy rather than science fiction.
Later on as they start to discover more complex technologies and Avis then I agree that it heads through a crossover mix into soft SF. But there is no clear distinction between the fields anyway.
I loved the start of the series and am less enthusiastic with each additional book as they rewrite history and ignore canon. The first few books fit together and I loved the universe and story. By the end of the AIVAS arc, the stories didn't fit as neatly into the universe.
Assuming of course that one is going to try and draw a line between SF and Fantasy. Pern very clearly illustrates why this is such difficult and perhaps pointless thing to do.
