@ben_hr This sounds like a nightmare to write with all of the estate stipulations — it feels similar in character to when Anne Rice had a meltdown about a building she had mentioned in one of her books being renovated as a restaurant, and not wanting the owner to mention the building was the one from the book

@ben_hr I read the top blurb of this and I'm satisfied

@Kels_316 @ben_hr mining royalties to outlying dwarf systems are in dispute

@Kels_316 I'm still waiting for the David Simon municipal drama about gangs, corruption, policing, and Cloud City
