Book Note: James H. Schmitz, Trigger & Friends

I read this book about 19-Feb-2002. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1956 - 1974. This note was last modified Saturday, 19-Aug-2006 10:45:44 PDT.

This note does not contain major spoilers for the book.


Another of the Baen books reissue volumes, again edited by Eric Flint and Guy Gordon (Guy doesn't make the cover of this one).

I somehow missed Schmitz when he was current; partly because he was magazine and I mostly wasn't, and he was a little early for me. I'm enjoying the reissues. They're not great, but they're fun. I doubt they'll become old favorites with all the spots read off them, though.

This one is about Trigger Argee and Holati Tate, with some of Heslet Quillan. I believe there's another volume where Trigger and Telzey get together; I'm not sure that's really a safe idea, personally. These people are all damned trouble-prone. The girls are also clearly ADHD -- easily bored, and happy to take drastic and poorly considered actions to escape it even temporarily. Those actions nearly always turn out to have been necessary later; lucky for them. Still, I do like the shapes of some of the capers quite a lot.
