Three years later, there came How Much for Just the Planet - Star Trek as musical comedy, plus parodies of other film styles. It was hilarious at times, touching at others and the original characters interacted with the classic ones seamlessly. It impressed me so much I induced jonbaker to buy it himself when we met two years later.
And I still think about these books - things still remind me of them.
John M. Ford passed away last night. The world is a poorer place.
