Book Review: The City Who Fought by Anne McCaffrey and S.M. Stirling

What do you call someone else’s nostalgia?

As, to be honest, I never read much McCaffrey when I was a kid. Like, maybe one or two of the Pern books, but they just didn’t hook me as they did to a lot of other folks. 1,646 more words
