    I've read most everything Varley has written. I started with his TITAN, WIZARD, DEMON trilogy. That really got me hooked.

    I loved his newest trilogy, or so I thought it was. Red Thunder, Red Lightening, Rolling Thunder. But just now I found out, his fourth in the series is out. I'm gonna buy it today.

    I hope I'm not disappointed, like a was with SLOW APOCALYPSE. That's the only thing I've read of his that I didn't like....It's too real, too depressing. I couldn't even finish it.

    Picnic on Nearside is short stories like Blue Champagne.

    They made a movie out of Millennium with Cheryl Ladd and Chris Christofferson. That was fantastic.

    Mammoth, The Golden Globe, Steel Beach, and The Ophiuchi Hotline were some others.

    Got DARK LIGHTENING the other day from is back to his fantastic self. i think it's awesome how he can write from a woman's perspective. Like the whole TITAN trilogy....he was writing as the female commander of a spaceship that explored uncharted space....then she became the WIZARD...and then the DEMON.

    In one of the short stories from THE NEARSIDE, he wrote as a woman that beheaded a man, because she thought that men wouldn't die because their brains were in their dicks.
