Sad day . I just wish he had done some books in H beam Piper's universe like he always said he would.

Appreciate what he gave us. Few did as much.

I wish that his surname, Pournelle was spelt correctly in this title.

Really enjoyed his Co-Dominion stories, one of the military sci-fi forerunners & it's time to re-read Falkenberg's Legion et al, in salutation.

RIP sir and thank you for the stories.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of his works, especially "The Janissaries."

Sad :( perhaps not the best writer, but certainly imaginative and influential

Sad indeed. I was never all that fond of the stuff he did solo, but I really liked his collaborations with Niven.
