Murder in the Gunroom

by H. Beam Piper

H. Beam Piper's death ended the life of one of the finest writers of the mid-20th Century. While he was known primarily as a "scifi" author, he wasn't limited to that field except by the market for his writing. "Murder in the Gunroom" is an example; the main character is a Private Investigator who uses his knowledge of firearms [an area that Piper was an expert in] to discover the motive for the crime that was listed as "accidental" or "suicide". While the peripheral characters, even the murder, were pretty much 2-dimensional, the story was still very readable, and it's unfortunate that Piper didn't write more stories using this character. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys mysteries.

Time and Time Again

by H. Beam Piper

An interesting story, and one in which the main character, being thrown back in time to when he was a small boy [but with the memories of his whole life], acted upon these memories to change his life; having been killed in a future war, he attempted to change the future to prevent the war.
