|Challenge Name||In Jim Baen's Memory|
|Challenge Type||Personal Challenge|
|Category||Literature > Fantasy|
|Description||Science Fiction and Fantasy publisher Jim Baen (of Baen Books) died just a few days ago (June 28th 2006). For more than 20 years he brought us the works of great authors like David Weber (Honor Harrington), David Drake (Hammer's Slammers, Lt. Leary), Kieth Laumer (Bolos, Retief) and many more.|
The Challenge (which I admit is rather broad and vague) write a short piece with your favorite Buffy character interacting with your favorite Baen Books Character. I know it can be done as I've already read a few right here at TTH.
A few possible bunnies to get you started (but please don't consider yourself limeted to the following):
-The Bolo (huge intelligent noble battle tanks) novel "The Road to Damascus" strongly implies that the big machines have souls, if Bolos are part of the reincarnation cycle just whose souls are inhabiting the big tanks who consider it their sacred duty to protect mankind?
-Cobras and Blackcollars (both from books by Timothy Zahn) are elite warriors augmented by technology (Cobras are cyborgs and Blackcollars have had their genetics altered) to fight against Humanity's Alien enemies while looking like nothing more than just another average human. What happens when one of these elite warriors end up on the Hell Mouth?
-Ghost (from the Ghost novels by John Ringo) is a bad bad man with tremendous self discipline that keeps him from doing bad things. What happens when this ex seal with a tendency to get into trouble and a liking for pretty girls meets Faith in a back ally on a rainy night?
-In the novel Tinker (by Wen Spencer) and it's sequel Pittsburgh got permanently transported to the homeworld of the Elves, what happens if Sunnydale with it's very own active Hellmouth follows?
