Drat! :-) <

What I'd like to read is the "lost" chapters from TMiGE (which, BTW, 
Niven wanted to call "The Mote in Murcheson's Eye") featuring the 
battle for New Chicago... It was cut for space reasons (oh, frak! 
Pardon the pun...) but it would have been entertaining to see the 
MacArthur in action under Bruno Cziller.

Are they Empire/Mote books? Something to do with the Saurons?

Phil, who has a sort of semi-EoM fleet based heavily on the ESU stuff 
with wings and BCs made from Warsaws and NAC BC/BB rear hulls... 
Nothing bigger than a BC yet, though.
