it came out of the wordwork

I am reminded
I've been working on Sword of Orion, and in preparation for it, and to keep in shape during,
I've read and continue to read alternating bouts of Heinlein and Andre Norton, with a subtle infusion
of a few of my other favorite authors from junior high school.

...And last week I read _The Stars Are Ours_. I was startled to find this 50 year old book was dedicated to Harlan Ellison. Then I got in and read the first section and pfftt... the whole thing was read in an hour or two. I was a kid when I first read it, but in particular I found the description of the "Paxmen" an effective part of the book.

So today, I wandered across this: http://www.smirkingchimp.com/print.php?sid=19277 and am reminded of _The Stars our Ours_ ... shiver.
