    Pedophilia trigger These are not witches disguised as children, but rather children who have developed certain talents And there is much talk with the captain of approaching marriageable age, which is apparently 16, at least for girls.

    This was a swooping delight of an old school sci fi adventure It was written back in 1966 and I d never heard of it until last week The writing was inventive so inventive, in fact, that whenever Schmitz found himself at what could be a sticky plot point, he invented a new word entity force to get his heroes out of the jam So just rell the vatch and go along for a dizzying, ridiculous and enjoyable ride Goofy like Pratchett, only with less internal coherence And I don t mean that in a bad w This was a swooping delight of an old school sci fi adventure It was written back in 1966 and I d never heard of it until last week The writing was inventive so inventive, in fact, that whenever Schmitz found hims...

    This is one of those semi forgotten underground classics that, like many people, I d heard of but never read or indeed even seen available anywhere So I was reasonably pleased to find a copy on my most recent foray to the used bookstore Calling this science fiction is really to distort the term beyond all meaning, this is a perfect example of what is sometimes referred to as science fantasy Sure, there are spaceships and ray guns and various unexplained technological devices but there are als This is one of those semi forgotten underground classics that, like many people, I d heard of but never read or indeed even seen available anywhere So I was reasonably pleased to find a copy on my most recent foray to the used bookstore Calling this science fiction is really to distort the term beyond all meaning, this is a perfect example of what is somet...

    Space opera fun Roughly the first third of this was originally a short story 1949 , and the main character reminded me strongly of Han Solo The plot expands beyond that point, and it eventually became the shared world of other writers resulting in a trilogy Nominated for the 1967 Hugo award, it s just plain fun.This is probably my first exposure to this author, known as a craftsman writer who wrote many strong female characters The three juvenile witches...
