Another take on things

Have you ever read Randall Garret's "Despoilers of the Golden Empire"?

It doesn't sound familiar, but I've read some other stuff about the Spanish invasion. Teachers got pissed about me calling it that, but well, that's the term for going to someone else's home and murdering them because you want their stuff.

Re: Another take on things

Well, it reads like a golden age SF story about taking over another planet. Until the end. The best part is that at no point did he lie about *anything*.
