Summary: Thread is the name of a deadly phenomenon that appears throughout Anne McCaffrey's series of science-fiction novels about the fictional planet Pern. Threads are thin silver filaments of a space-borne mycorrhizoid spore that devours all matter that it touches. Pern periodically experiences Threadfalls where this deadly organism rains down from the sky.
