    One thought on “Trigger & Friends”

    1. Baen books made a good job re-publishing all of James Schmitz's SF production, but at the same time they made a -for me- unacceptable blunder: the editors of the collection decided they were justified in modifying the books at their will.Eric Flint, a SF author, was one of the editors who decided to improve Schmitz's works. In this way, he shortened significantly the size of the novel Legacy, claiming thatSchmitz madeā€¦ two big mistakes in the way he wrote the novel. Both of which mistakes can [...]

    2. This volume of Hub stories revolves around Trigger Argee and her frequent friends and companions. More diverse than the Telzey stories, these tales are engaging and fun. I particularly liked Lion Loose and short novel, The Legacy. If you like space opera, this collection is highly recommended.

    3. Telzey stories are always good, although Schmitz likes to keep mysteries about the telepathic "animals" race. I'm just putting a note here for anyone who may have collected other stories and wants to know what's here. Stories:Harvest Time" September 1958. "Lion Loose" October 1961. "Aura of Immortality" June 1974. "Forget It" is an adaptation by Guy Gordon of "Planet of Forgetting" February 1965. (edited)Legacy 1962 aka A Tale of Two Clocks. (edited)"Sour Note on Palayata" November, 1956.As anot [...]

    4. Product Description IF BUREAUCRACIES HAD STARSHIPSCon games. Corrupt governors. Deadly rivalries between departments of the same government. And, of course, the long arm of the Mob. Even in our future among the stars, some things never change -- except that the governors run (and ruin) planets, the rivalries are fought with spacecraft and energy bolts, and the mobsters smuggle real illegal aliens and make their getaways with subspace portals. It's all just another day in that bastion of galactic [...]

    5. The Telzey stories in volume 1 all kind of had the same plot, but this volume is much more varied. There are more protagonists, for one thing, and though they're all highly capable they aren't as overpowering as Telzey. On the other hand, perhaps because Trigger isn't as overpowering as Telzey, the way people treat her is a lot more high-handed and occasionally sexist, which got irritating (especially Quillan! Why do you like him, Trigger? You deserve better!) Also, the unfortunate over-reliance [...]

    6. -Considering that Schmitz wrote these stories in the late 1950s & early 60s it is amazing how relevant to our present day political situations they are. His characters are crisp and memorable. The plots are full of suspense, and the milk of human kindness shows through in all of them. Well worth the time to read.-
