i thought he was a really good conversationalist, probably liked his speaking better than his writing.
A long , full life. Too bad it could not continue.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

devoured a lot of Scifi. He spun a good yarn, that I'm sure of. I don't
remember specific works now, but they were many...
"Jerry Pournelle, the writer behind The Mote in God's Eye, The Mercenary,
Lucifer's Hammer, and many more, has passed away at the age of 84..."
I definitely remember reading The Mote in God's Eye, probably Lucifer's
Hammer as well...
