    But ABR. correct, James Blish, A Case of Conscience.

    Gotta love a story where the protagonist blows up a planet by exorcising it.

    To you, ABR.

    Okay, I'm having trouble coming up with a good/original story. Let's go with something easy since I may be away from the computer for a couple weeks.

    In order to win, he had to sleep.
    So many bugs, so little time.

    O-ke-doe.

    Even if the world stinks, enhancing the sense of smell may not solve the problem.

    Telempath by Spider Robinson?

    Fred
    Hey, you! "It's" with an apostrophe means "it is" or "it has." "Its" without an apostrophe means "belongs to it."

    "For shame, gentlemen, pack your evidence a little better against another time."
    -- John Dryden, "The Vindication of The Duke of Guise" 1684

    Earth's sole legacy will be a very slight increase (0.01%) of the solar metallicity.

    Wow, yes, good show!
    The Spider's very first novel.
    Yours, Fred.

    Haven't thought about that one for years. Read it in Analog.

    Obsessive professor finds an ancient secret message and proceeds to get down... way down...

    I guess that "ancient secret message" (along with Analog) would rule out Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth.

    I read Telempath in Analog. Take another bash at it.

    OK, since it's been some 4 days and nobody's said anything, I'm passing it to Tobin Dax because I was indeed thinking of A Journey to the Center of the Earth.
