I read Fire in the Steppe long ago; all of it. It is still amazing to me that the author wrote this as a serial piece and was traveling the world when he was still writing each month's segment and sending it to the magazine publisher. If you've read it you know, he had a cast of thousands and I don't remember ever running across an error of the kind caught these days by the continuity functionary in modern films.

I miss the weapons artificer who would delight in telling me all about my punctuation errors.
