G Harry Stine's "Warbots"
- Anyone read it?
I've got what I think is a near-full set, but
I stupidly loaned out #1, and missed one of
the others. #1 is the Zahedan beginning, and
the other is #9.
The thing about Stine (died back in '96) was
he saw the use of aerodynes (think that 60's
'flying saucer') replacing most aircraft and
choppers, and replacing men on the battlefield
with tele-controlled robots.
The series premise is that they find out its
not all its cracked up to be when they are
'swarmed' human-wave style in the Middle East.
They begin a new program of 'Sierra Charlies',
men & women that go back onto the battlefields
with semi-intelligent voice-controlled bots,
basically acting as the officers to their
I highly recommend the series...
He also saw submarine carriers, that only
surfaced to launch the 'dynes from the deck
hatches, and submarine landing craft that
crawled up onto the beach.
Anyone that browses used stores, please watch
for issues #1 and #9 for me please? I'll cover
prices and shipping, hate incomplete series!
- Greetings WW and All,
Been awhile. How are your projects going? I've been hung up obsessing
over trying to reinvent the wheel (still hunting pedrail parts) and
reinventing the paintball cannon (there has simply got to be a way of
making those darn things smaller! --LOL).
Can fully understand the need to maintain a complete series of good
books. Since I've never noticed these, and you now have me intrigued, I
will certainly be on the look out.

I could be wrong, but I thought that the Germans had messed around with
these ideas back in WWI and/or II. (Curse that, "Nothing New Under The
Sun." thing anyway! --LOL)
