Perhaps not a lot of help, but it would be cool to see the other two Furies resurrected...

In one of the Skylark series -- same as noted above, but above was understated -- the hero used a *galaxy* as ammunition.

Well, 3 of his last 5 - Number of the Beast, The Cat Who Walked Through Walls, and To Sail Beyond The Sunset - of the other two, Friday is something of a throwback to his earlier novels, and Job, A Comedy of Justice just doesn't have any crossovers, but tackles some of the same themes.


I did like the way RAH proposed dealing with the interuniversal "Black Hats" and Apparatchiki

call an interstellar conference and lure them with:-
1) Free admission - but no exit provided
2) Extensive Free Bar - but no booze
3) Superb canteen and restaurant facilities - but no food

Commissariat by the Kilkenny Cats method.
