I don’t actually want to read these books because I remember them as being really bad, but it’s driving me nuts that I can’t remember them.
In the late 80s, I had a roommate who was dumb as a stump. He didn’t actually read, but he had a collection of maybe 6-9 hardcover science fiction books. It was one big series. He’d never read them, but he proudly displayed them in our living room because he thought it looked cool to have a bunch of hardcover books. I also think he thought it made him look smart.
Because I was actually a reader, I picked them up and read a few of them. I remember them as being incredibly badly-written and the author liked to use exclamation points a lot. The gist of the story was that there was a race of aliens who had advanced via biological technology. So instead of building, say, a car, they bred an animal to be large, fast, and have a central cavity where the aliens could sit.
I also sort of remember that the aliens were all female, and the males were much tinier and kept in harem-like structures. Or maybe it was the reverse.
Anyway, I had this idea they were written by Harry Harrison, but that’s wrong, because I can’t find them in any bibliography of his work, and he’s a decent writer.
And I could be wrong about how bad they were. If I am, I apologize.
