Guards!" Code: Dedication They may be called the Palace Guard, the City Guard, or the Patrol. Whatever the name, their purpose in any work of heroic fantasy is identical: it is, round about Chapter Three (or ten minutes into the film) to rush into the room, attack the hero one at a time, and be slaughtered. No one ever asks them if they wanted to. This book is dedicated to those fine men. And also to Mike Harrison, Mary Gentle, Neil Gaiman and al l the others who assisted with and laughed at the idea of L-space; too bad we never used Schrödinger’s Paperback… Last fiddled with by firejuggler on 2015-11-08 at 00:03
