04:26 pm: There and Back Again by Pat Murphy sort of writing as Max Merriwell
This is a delightful book! Not only is it a good space opera -- good plot & twists, fine characterization -- but as you read along you find the story lightly paralleling Bilbo's. There's even a puzzle to work out!

Highly recommended.

The Max Merriwell thing is a little odd, though. The only place his name turns up is on the title page and on a couple of editorial pages at the end. If she wants to use that for a psuedonym, why not actually use it? There's really no sense of Max until her explanation at the end.

She actually wrote a trilogy, and Max wrote one and is a character in another, and I forget what is the deal in the third.

Welcome to lj; I like it a whole lot better than rasff. I've added you to my reading list.

I got Adventures in Time and Space with Max Merriwell but couldn't find the third. Wild Angel is between them in publishing order, think that's it?

I still like rasff better than lj (and I definitely like the interface better!) but I'm glad you like my posts.

Turns out Wild Angel is the middle book, so I've got that on order. Thanks for giving me the clue!
