My most recent reading pleasure has been Keith Laumer's Retief-book "Envoy to New Worlds", which I quick-read after stumbling upon some issues of Jan Strnad/Dennis Fujitake comics from the 80's. The comics weren't bad at all, rather good ones actually, provided one likes Laumer's sense of humour and his sometimes rather (*hem*) "old-fashioned" opinions and quirks. Which I do, but then again I'm known (amongst my crowd) from my bad taste(s).

"Envoy to New World" is a collection of short stories of Retief, an interplanetary diplomat with slightly more straight-forward take on things "discreet" than the official line of the Corps Diplomatique de Terranean. Fun, almost pulp.
