    Any fans of Keith Laumer's books here?

    I am surprised that Keith laumer is not mentioned much here. I am a fan of his books, especially the Retief series, and am wondering if there is anyone else here who reads his novels. RETIEF IS THE MAN!!!!!

    By the way I did ask you about the Retief series on a General Discussion thread a few minutes ago!

    I quite like his Bolo books and "A Plague of Demons".

    I've read two!

    I read Eartblood as a teenager and I just loved it! I'm not generally into early space opera but this one just hooked me on!
    I also enjoyed The Hounds Of Hell.
    Unfortunatly Laumer's books are hard to find now adays.
