I realize that this isn't a sci-fi mailing list, but I thought that,
in light of the Heinlein comments drifting around, that I would make a
brief note of how indebted we Epic players (or at least we Marine
players) are to Heinlein. If you like science fiction, or can at
least stand it, read Starship Troopers. As far as I know, this is the
first occurence of powered armor or drop pods in sci-fi. Plus you
have your archetypical alien bug race, complete with hive mind.
(Tyranids, anyone?) Besides, it's a cool book. (It even includes the
use of infantry-carried mini-nukes!)
