  •  About that Trouble Twisters cover... (11+ / 0-)

    It's a stylized version of David Falkayn with his trading team partner Adzel. Apparently they're in the middle of a dispute with inhabitants of a low-tech world with trading goods coveted by Solar Spice and Liquors.

    Adzel's a rather interesting character. Described (IIRC) as a Draco-Centauroid, he's an accomplished Planetologist and a practicing Buddhist. During his impoverished grad student days on Terra, he managed to supplement his stipend by appearing as Fafnir in a Wagner revival - and got rave reviews for his performance. He apparently possessed a more than adequate singing voice for the role, along with his other obvious physical qualifications.

    "No special skill, no standard attitude, no technology, and no organization - no matter how valuable - can safely replace thought itself."
