Other Worlds, Times, and Places: Jerry E. Pournell

Jerry Pournelle (August 7, 1933 )

First Book: Red Heroin (as Wade Curtis) (1965)

Asteroids, Alien Abduction, Mercenaries, and Moties

Sometime in the late 70's/early 80's, I picked up a book called Lucifers Hammer. It was a collaboration by two authors I had never read before, Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. The team up was great. I looked for other books by this team and found The Mote in God's Eye, a truly fantastic novel. From there I discovered the Jannissaries, Falkenberg's Legion, and the CoDominium.
