Fans of the Traveller RPG will certainly want to grab a copy of the one hundred and fifty page ebook as it details not only fiction which inspired Marc Miller as he designed the game system but also stories and novels the game, in turn, helped create.

About the book:
Award-winning reviewer Shannon Appelcline (Designers & Dragon) investigates the science-fiction literature that shaped the structure and content of the Traveller science-fiction role-playing game. He reviews and discusses the broad expanse of SF that influenced Marc Miller as he designed the massive background universe of Traveller, and then gives equal consideration to the novels and short stories that were inspired by Traveller.
