Recreational reading

Have just finished H. Beam Piper's Junkyard Planet ... like all Piper's works, a very good read with a great deal of story packed into very few words. So nice that a few small presses are making it possible for next generations to read these classic authors and titles. Made an interesting contrast to my recently-read copies of Selina Rosen's Drewcila Qwah books ... both tales are about the rebuilding of post-war depression economies, but in very ***ahem*** different styles. Yet at the same time coming very close in their descriptions of and methods of dealing with human attitudes, behaviours, and beliefs. Some problems really do have only one solution ... scam 'em and make 'em successful despite themselves. ;-)
