Genre-crossover nightmares


Recommended Posts

Here's a "what if" for this topic -- one that's not a nightmare; actually,  it's more

of a "what if" exercise. The "what if" being, in this case, what if E.E. "Doc" Smith

Had been born at a later date, and had lived long enough to collaborate with

fellow sci-fi author David Weber?


I daresay we could very well have seen the following title on bookshelves:


Lens of Honor


(Or the other possibility: Honor of the Lens)


Premise: Honor -- and her treecat friend Nimitz -- are secretly contacted by an

entity of starkly unimaginable power calling itself Mentor of Arisia, who informs

them both that they have been chosen to be Guardians of Civilization. Further,

they are told that they will be provided with an instrumentality to enable them

to carry out this task.


The name of this instrumentality: the Lens of Arisia.

Certainly "inspired by"

But the demon barber is a different story........

The original name of the play was "String of Pearls". It was a classic Victorian melodrama play and Sweeney Todd was more out and out evil than a man out for revenge.
