Jen | 148 comments Hi, miracle workers. Paperback scifi about 30+ years ago. Alien planet, I think humans were peacekeepers and local custom involved working the word 'courtesy' into the conversation almost as a salutation. Possible psychic element to the native humanoid species.

Banjomike | 125 comments That sounds like a Clifford D Simak story called, wait for it, Courtesy.

It is in the collection: The Autumn Land and Other Stories

Jen | 148 comments Thanks for your keen eyes, I researched Simak's short story, "Courtesy" and it is not the one I am looking for. I appreciate your suggestion, though.

Bump period for this group is 30 days since the group is so large, unless you remember new info which you can add at any time.

Thanks, Bargle that story looks fascinating! Not the one I am thinking of, but thank you for checking this thread and responding.
