    Yes, I am a geek! Great graphics, though.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Pretty nice. I've read, re-read, and re-re-read the first three books, and I'm working my way through the Niven/Lerner prequels.

    I want to see this artist take on the creation of Fist-of-God. That'll take some skill with CGI.

    You must be a time traveler. The third book of the "trilogy" came out 15 years ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringworld_series
