Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from CPTSkip
Review:
I loved Harry Harrison's Jason and am really looking forward to seeing where Jason and his mate are going to go and what adventures they will have. I almost feel sorry for the Evil inhabitants of Sunnydale. They won't know what hits them. Lol!

I always thought the power holster was really neat. I hope Gwen and Xander kept theirs.
Comments from author:
It was one of my favorite series growing up. Jason could get into just as much trouble as Xander did. And as soon as I can figure out exactly how I want to write it, I plan on having a confrontation between Gwen and the other girls.

I plan on keeping the power holsters. What is a Pyrran without their gun.

Thank you.

Review:
well i like the story so far.but i don't think i know the book you took the crossover from kinda surprised me since i'm a avid sci fi and fantasy reader.its nice to see some new work that i haven't a clue on where you took it from.so keep up the great work cant wait until you write more got me really interested
Comments from author:
Deathworld is series of three books by Harry Harrison. They are great. He also wrote the Stainless Steel Rat series, another good one. There is a fourth part, or so I'm told, but it was written with a co-author and only published in Russian.

Thank you.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from (Recent Donor)drdeth
Review:
Great start, I have never seen this crossover before and I look forward to seeing the next chapter. I have read the DeathWorld books and think you wrote Jason very well.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I think Jason would always try to avoid a physical fight when possible but would not back down when pressed. He was dangerous in his own way. In some ways, more so than native Pyrrans because they refused to look outside the box.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from Rich
Review:
I haven't even thought about the Deathworld books in years, if not decades. Definitely an oldie but goodie, and an interesting choice for a crossover. I'm not so sure about the "stronger than Buffy" part, but Pyrrans are certainly stronger than normal, and are seriously dangerous people with (literally) lethal reflexes - they have to disarm before they're even safe to talk to. I'd read more if you decide to write it
Comments from author:
I would say a native Pyrran could give Buffy a run for her money, though Jason would only be able to do so with extreme luck. But then again, Jason would never try to go head to head with a Pyrran without something heavy duty behind him. As for being dangerous, Pyrrans are used to things more dangerous than vampires. I think most life forms on Pyrrus would kill a vampire with ease. Even a slayer would have a hard time on the planet. I can't remember the exact words but I think Kerk said something along the lines of "your're the luckiest person I've ever met" to Jason. Or something like it.

As for the books, I love them. I have lots of old books just like them.

And thank you.

Edit: I found this statement in the book and thought it might lend credence to how strong a Pyrran was.

'Kerk picked up a length of steel pipe from the desk that he used as a paperweight and toyed with it as he thought. The thick steel bent like rubber at his touch...'

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from ThunderGod
Review:
I like it, something new in YAHF fics, but I don't know Gwen Ditchik, probably an OC, so may not follow the story from here
Comments from author:
Thank you. As for Gwen, she is not OC. She is one of Cordelia's friends. I think I remember reading one other fix on here with her in it. She is not a well known one, so i can flesh her out a bit. And she will have been influenced by Meta. I hope you continue.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from djhardim
Review:
Book 2 was my favorite. Xander will be lucky if he retains any of Jason's technical background.
Comments from author:
I'm not sure if I have a favorite book in this series. I like all three. Even with increased strength and speed from living on Pyrrus, his greatest asset is his mind. I plan on using that. And plus, I love how Meta is possessive of him. Threatening most women who show any interest in him.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from eriktheviking
Review:
The first crossover with Harry Harrison's Deathworld I've ever come across and it was a good one. I will have to look up the new female character. Looking forward to seeing how this develops, well done.
Comments from author:
Thank you. As for Gwen, she is character from BtVS. I can't remember how many episodes she is in, but she is one of Cordy's friends.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from Studyofchaos
Review:
Good lord I enjoyed Deathworld (and pretty much anything else written by Harry Harrison! I like the story and hope you continue with this (and have some fun). Maybe bring in Slippery Jim as well for a bit more chaos!
Comments from author:
Thank you. I loved the books when I read them years ago and just recently read them again. I'm not sure if I could bring in Jim with this story. I know there is some debate to whether or not they take place in the same universe, so I could do it probably. But I think I would want to do a separate story with him if I write him.

Review:
Deathworld and The Ethical Engineer are available as audiobooks at librivox . com as free public domain downloads. Decent stories. They helped kill a few hours at work on the milling machine.
Comments from author:
Thank you for this. I have the books in paperback but I'll look the audiobooks up.
