Vance | 362 comments Might be early, but it seems like the next book (after Wolfe) could be either a "sword" or a "laser" (if we are even bothering trying to alternate anymore). While I tend to prefer "sword", I think a good, true "laser" is in order. And, by that, I mean a good ol' space action novel, fast-paced and non-epic.

And, the fact that this type of novel happens to be exactly what I am looking for has NOTHING to do with it! :0) (see my other thread . . .).

Vance | 362 comments That is what I was thinking! We have not had a classic laser action book in a while, I am thinking.
