H. Beam Piper's Other Works

"Why Walt Disney bought the movie rights to ['Rebel Raider'], I've never figured out.  Will Colonel Mosby be played by Mickey Mouse,* and General Phil Sheridan by Donald Duck?  It's baffling.  However, I was glad to get the check."

— H. Beam Piper, The Pennsy interview, 1953

*As it turned out, Mosby was played by Jack Ging in Disney's 1967 adaptation.

Besides his Terro-human Future History and his Paratime yarns, Piper also published other novels, stories and non-fiction pieces that were not part of either of these settings.  Among these other works were his 1953 mystery novel Murder in the Gunroom and seven short stories including the linked, future-historical, science-fictional "Hartley" yarns "Time and Time Again" (1947), "The Mercenaries" (1950), and "Day of the Moron" (1951).  Piper also collaborated on four science-fiction yarns with John J. McGuire: Null-ABC (1953), (reissued as Crisis in 2140), "The Return" (1954), "Lone Star Planet" (1957), (reissued as A Planet for Texans), and "Hunter Patrol" (1959).  Most of the stories have been collected in The Worlds of H. Beam Piper and Empire, edited by John F. Carr.
     Also included here are various Piper commentaries and critiques as well as information about the work of Piper collaborators and sequelists.
