Mr.Champions
On the off chance that someone might see this who doesn't know Cordwainer Smith---he was (imho) the best writer ever in the science fiction arena. Much of his work was demanding, with a complex world and social mores which were significant to the stories. This book helps define terms and fill in the chronology, it can add to your enjoyment of these gem-like stories. Get this book, skim through it, and you will be compelled to go back to some of the best fiction ever written.

This is a good reference guide to Cordwainer Smith's various books. Do not expect too much, though. Mostly, what you get is one-sentence definitions of many of the people, places and things in Smith's books, and, in some cases, a brief explanation of where the name comes from. A publication guide to Smith's stories is also included.
While there's an introduction, the book's greatest lack is essays and discussions concerning the works and their author (Paul Linebarger, as Smith was his nom de plume). Comparisons of Smith's stories and the myths he took some of them from would be helpful.
Good, but there's work to do in future editions.

I read "Alpha Ralpha Boulevard" when it first came out in the 1960's and have been hooked on Cordwainer Smith's future ever since. Even so, I never figured out the references to "Meeya Meefla" until I read this Concordance. Thanks, Mr.. Lewis, for opening my dull eyes.
