Isn't Little Fuzzy available here? I thought most of the public domain H. Beam Piper was already up.

Little Fuzzy is available here at least in LRF. But since I am in Scotland at the moment, I'll sort out any updates and versions needed one I am home. I get home on January 3rd so I figure, the 5th most likely.

Alas... with 40 people already having vote, I believe the winning title will have "Time" in it.

The poll still has a few days. But, I have no idea what the tie breaker will be. Perhaps as the Grand Poobah's assistant I will decide.

Bribes will be accepted in my paypal account.

We could read them both. "Time Machine" is only a "novella" and "Time Traders" isn't very long, either.

I'm going to lobby for Time Traders, because that's the only one I haven't read, yet. Plus I love Andre Norton. Can't think of why I haven't read that one.

Snow Crash is only one behind - one more vote for Snow Crash (at the point of typing) and we have a three way tie!

Vote Snow Crash!
