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

Fiction, Non-fiction and More

Besides his Terro-human Future History and 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 mystery novel Murder in the Gunroom (1953) and seven short stories including the linked "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 his friend John J. McGuire: Null‑ABC (1953), "The Return" (1954), Lone Star Planet (1957) and "Hunter Patrol" (1959).  Most of the stories have been collected in The Worlds of H. Beam Piper, edited by John F. Carr ("The Return" appears in Empire, also edited by Carr).
