"[H. Beam Piper] knew the grand sweep of history, but he also knew the small tales, the intrigues and petty jealousies, heroism and cowardice, honor and betrayals. This, I think, is why his stories have such a ring of truth. He was a story teller, a man who could keep you up all night with his books and tales."
— Jerry Pournelle, preface to "Federation"

"English is the product of a Saxon warrior trying to make a date with an Angle bar-maid,
and as such is no more legitimate than any of the other products of that conversation."
— H. Beam Piper (in "Fuzzy Sapiens")
