  1. If you didn't read Lucifer's Hammer, you're probably just really really confused and bored

    1. Usually, a big name really does mean a great story, but occasionally it just seems to mean "the editors thought they couldn't refuse/edit someone this famous."

    2. Yeah, I'm sure if Ben Bova or Stan Schmidt wanted to get a story published they get a free pass...
