Reviews

A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

EBooks on Parade



A new Kindle Edition of Fallen Angels is up on Amazaon.com for the princely price of US$4.99, a mere Abe Lincoln.  Buy early and often.  The recent behavior of Old Sol may make it more timely than not!  Colder times ahead, perhaps. 

This edition is published by the Authors Themselves: Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle, and your humble servant, courtesy of Managing Partner Pournelle and his chaos manor advisors. 

The original drafts were actually written when Global Cooling as the crisis du jour was giving way to Global Warming, and the idea of one as the antidote for the other was just too delicious. 
And as long as we are on the subject of ebooks, another helpful reminder that there is a Kindle edition of a novelette of mine, called The Iron Shirts, from tor.com for a paltry US$0.99, a mere George Washington.  This is an alternate history story of treachery, deceit, and other fun things. 

And last but not least is the re-issue of the story collection, The Forest of Time. , available as a Kindle for US$9.99, a mere Alexander Hamilton.  At first, because it includes my epic poem "There's a Bimbo on the Cover" we had thought to use this cover:

But cooler heads prevailed and it was issued with the less lascivious cover shown below.

  1. IIRC, there was a period of nearly a decade between the Global Cooling and Global Warming hysterias when Acid Rain was the Number One problem.
