I've enjoyed you looking at these. I've been searching the house for a copy of Operation Columbus which I picked up several years ago. I think it must have gone back to a charity shop. I remember reading 3 out of the 4. It did not feel to me as if the Christian element was as prominent as you suggest, but I can see it now you have pointed it out. Personally I think, 'it could have been luck, but it may have been God,' is a reasonable literary technique as long as you don't overuse it.

The thing I still don't understand is why Walters was so highly regarded by people in education. Why did my English teacher recommend Walters rather than American sci fi writers? Was this cultural snobbery?
