>Congratulations to Gryph and all the other Eyrie writers...you've
>managed to create a universe I'd like to live in.
>Offhand I can only think of two other writers who've done that; Spider
>Robinson and Robert Heinlein.
(1) I, for one, can't stand Heinlein;
(2) I think I'm the only one of all of us who's read anything by Spider, and although I frequent alt.callahans I'm ambievalent on his short stories and detest -all- his novel-length works;
and (3) most of the settings both authors used are -not- terribly fun ones. The Place in its variant incarnations is the only item I can understand a sentient, having his or her choice of worlds, -wanting- to visit, much less live in.
