One of the few books that I actually laughed out loud while reading. Tim Deforest rated it it was amazing Jul 05, Anderson and Dickson, two successful, experienced SF authors, were obviously having a lot of fun, and they hkoa up with a premise and with characters–the Hoka, large, powerful, but kindly teddy bears–that are sxpiens for this sort of story.

And then, to really shake your senses, you find the local citizens – in tremendous red bandanas, ten-gallon hats, chaps, high-heel boots and spurs – are pistol-toting teddy bears! Apr 26, Ralph Jenkins rated it it was amazing.

Very minimal wear and tear. The French Foreign Legion! Several of his novels were published posthumously. Without giving too much away, in the future, we’ve discovered a plant populated by a race that looks like teddy bears.
