22gigantes.com - They started giving me the business as soon as I came through the door into the Secretary’s outer office.There was Ethel K’wang-Li, the Secretary’s receptionist, at her desk. There was Courtlant Staynes, the assistant secretary to the Undersecretary for Economic Penetration, and Norman Gazarin, from Protocol, and Toby Lawder, from Humanoid Peoples’ Affairs, and Raoul Chavier, and Hans Mannteufel, and Olga Reznik.It was a wonder there weren’t more of them watching the condemned man’s march to the gibbet: the word that the Secretary had called me in must have gotten all over the Department since the offices had opened.“Ah, Mr. Machiavelli, I presume,” Ethel kicked off.“Machiavelli, Junior.” Olga picked up the ball. “At least, that’s the way he signs it.”“God’s gift to the Consular Service, and the Consular Service’s gift to Policy Planning,” Gazarin added.“Take it easy, folks. These Hooligan Diplomats would as soon shoot you as look at you,” Mannteufel warned.“Be sure and tell the Secretary that your friends all want important posts in the Galactic Empire.” Olga again.“Well, I’m glad some of you could read it,” I fired back. “Maybe even a few of you understood what it was all about.”“Don’t worry, Silk,” Gazarin told me. “Secretary Ghopal understands what it was all about. All too well, you’ll find.”A buzzer sounded gently on Ethel K’wang-Li’s desk. She snatched up the handphone and whispered into it. A deathly silence filled the room while she listened, whispered some more, then hung it up.They were all staring at me.“Secretary Ghopal is ready to see Mr. Stephen Silk,” she said. “This way, please.”As I started across the room, Staynes began drumming on the top of the desk with his fingers, the slow reiterated rhythm to which a man marches to a military execution.“A cigarette?” Lawder inquired tonelessly. “A glass of rum?”

By Failure Analyst This relatively short story from the late H. Beam Piper features the great State of Texas, projected into the future as an entire world, complete with ranchers, Texas Rangers, and super-sized EVERYTHING. Only the oil is missing from this enthusiastic projection. The story revolves around a new Solar League Ambassador to the world of New Texas, as he tries to deal with the murder of his immediate predecessor. The Solar League government is very unhappy with this murder, which it suspects might be associated with aggressive near-by canine-like aliens. The League is very willing to protect New Texas and NEEDS the planet to join the League so they can do just that, however due to their unique 'kill-the-politician' political accountability system, the New Texas government is unable to agree to becoming a League member. The story thus revolves around how Ambassador Silk can work around this self-protecting political unwillingness, and ultimately takes the form of a key New Texas courtroom battle. The leadership of the Solar League has also found another, quite sinister way to resolve this issue, for no-one would blame them for a 'justified conquest' of New Texas if a second one of their Ambassadors was murdered - as Ambassador Silk well knows, since in an earlier academic journal opinion article he had suggested that method himself! Good drama, action, political intrigue, a bit of romance, and brilliant courtroom action, with a very satisfying ending. Recommended reading! 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Another Perfect Space Opera By Brian E I have been a fan of H. Beam Piper ever since my Aunt gave me a Present of Lord Kalvin of Otherwhen when I was 12. I bought this as a pocketbook with two books in one. This story (Lone Star Planet) and the other story being the Four-Day planet years ago. When I saw this for a free Kindle Book, I jumped at the chance to download it to my Kindle. The Bottom Line is with this, What if the state of Texeas left Earth & settled on a planet just like Texas? And then, what would happen when the growing Terran Federation Needs the planet of New Texas to join them due to an alien threat? How would you convince an entire planet of of individulistic Federation wary Texans to Join? Get one of the Hooligan Diplomats to convince them, that's how! 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. A BOOK FOR THE ALL AGES ACROSS THE AGES By Liz Larson I was so excited when I found this book on the kindle! I enjoyed reading this as a youngster with my father and love sharing it with anyone I can! This narrative will leave you howling with laughter and occasionally gripping your seat as a new ambassador navigates the strange customs and politics of his new residence! This book has a draw for many tastes. If you like comedy and westerns, (think Maverick and Blazing Saddles) you will like this book. If you like the western steam-punk feel of the cartoon Trigun, you will love this book. If you enjoyed Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker five book trilogy, you will most definitely have found another favorite science fiction novella! See all 37 customer reviews...
