Andre mentioned by another writer
#1
I just finished reading "Genesis Fleet: Ascendant" by Jack Campbell - an excellent military space opera author. It is clear to see who influenced him in his writing. In the series, he has Mars deteriorate into a gang society with one gang, the Tharks ruled by a Jed - obviously giving homage to ERB. He also has one of the good characters traveling using another name to keep from being recognized by bad guys. The name she chooses is that of "Alice Mary Norton" with the occupation as "Librarian". Excellent choice in my estimation. And it works in the plot. I knew there was another reason I liked Campbell other than his skill at writing!

I'm glad that you brought this to my (our) attention. I almost never read military space opera.

Good to see the name used, and properly associated with the occupation.
