Crap. Writers seem to be dropping like flies at the moment.

I've got some Tenn collections on my TBR pile. I'll have to try and get round to reading them.

Sorry I needed new batteries in the keyboard so I could not say more about Tenn but there is plenty on the web now.

Try 'The Liberation of Earth' in his collection 'Of All Possible Worlds' if you can find it and have not read him before.

He was a brilliant short story writer, and one of the people who got me into Science Fiction way back when. I'd rate "The Party of the Two Parts" one of the funniest, most ingenious SF stories ever written, and a whole bunch of his others, such as "The Liberation of the Earth" mentioned by Roy and "The Servant Problem", were almost as good. Stu, you have a treat in store.

I too agree with Roy. Years ago I bought four or five paperbacks of Tenn's stories. "The Liberation of Earth" stands out in my mind, which does not mean that I remember it.
