Annotation

A truce was achieved by banning all weapons invented after 1900, but it led to TV programs showing mercenaries and constant warfare. Reynolds used the same trope with variations in his Mercenary From Tomorrow (1968), expanded as Joe Mauser: Mercenary From Tomorrow (1986); and Sweet Dreams, Sweet Princes (1986). The same protagonist appears in his The Fracas Factor. New York: Leisure Books/Norden, 1978.
