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

Bringing this thread back into view! :D

In this time of lock-down/-up/-in for the pandemic, I've been re-re-re ... doing the series when I was hit with this thirst for our author's most fun FLASH story! If there are newbies around who have not read this, go to page 1 and read it, you won't regret it! Of course (for the date) it does not have Nimue and a lot of the later developments *BUT* what a wild ride! :!:

What say you, my peers?

Thank you 1,000,000 (WOW 2013) Seems like an entirely different world...
I had forgotten that...

I have been re re reading the Honor Harrington series and at the present time in this read through, she is getting ready to go to Camp Inferno.

By good fortune, I have the entire series as well as the Safehold many as hard bound, others as kindle so, while the local libraries and book stores are closed, I can toss another log on the fire and pour three fingers of scotch ;)
