That's interesting.

Hope the Vargr doesn't meet the priests of Strephon before the local Uncle Wolf!

DJ, this is bizarre. It seems in that fleeting thing called real life, I might have actually known the fellow behind that strange but good idea. Reason being is that his author's profile, comes surprisingly close to describing the chap as I'd last exchanged e-mail with him, within the past twenty or so years.

Right now I'm busily writing a crossover for a neighboring list, in the realm of "Doctor Who meets Tom Swift" as it happens. The list itself is on that subject, that of Tom Swift.

As for your message, why not forward it to the regular Piper list? There must be people there who're interested.

Intriguing call for submissions for Lord Kalvan/Traveller cross-over fan fiction here:


~Freelance Traveller~ is a great webzine. Traveller's already incorporated Piper's Sword-Worlds, so it will be fascinating to see what happens when a shipwrecked Vargr shows up in the Great Kingdoms. . . .

Oath to Galzar!

"Oh, my people had many gods. There was Conformity, and Authority, and Expense Account, and Opinion. And there was Status, whose symbols were many, and who rode in the great chariot Cadillac, which was almost a god itself. And there was Atom-bomb, the dread destroyer, who would some day come to end the world. None were very good gods, and I worshiped none of them. - Calvin Morrison (H. Beam Piper), ~Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen~
