@Tot: I love the Star Fist books when I can get my hands on them!
In fact, I'm reading Star Fist: Technokill right now. Along with whatever I happen to find. Just finished reading David Weber's "By Heresies Distressed", the series (which began with "Off Armaggedon Reef") is arguably one of the top 10 Science Fiction stories I've ever read.
