I'm an Anne fan too, started off with the Dragons, then found the Crystal Singer tales. Love the Petaybee stories.
Not keen on the Catteni tales, the Dinosaur Planet ones continued into The Planet Pirates series and not really my cuppa Klah.
The Acorna ones are beginning to slip, I feel. Loved the series that developed from The Ship Who Sang. Also love the series which started with To Ride Pegasus, and developed into the Tower stories.
My faves though are tha Doona/Rrala stories, only three, unfortunately, and a standalone title which I would have loved to see developed further, published in the States as The Lady, in the UK as The Carradine Touch. Not science-fiction at all, but rather a fairly modern horse story based around the founding of the Irish Horse Board, (Bord NaG Capall).
Unfortunately, I feel that as Anne has loosened the reins on Acorna to Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, the tales are slipping away from the original intent. I feel that the same happened with The Planet Pirates.
Just my particular feelings on these,
