Still smoking ticklers I see.
Roll your own. I've no idea why they are called that but my father and grandfather both used the term. So it could be a Scottish term or the forces.
well, I'm not exactly German and I generally read every book in it's original language but my mothers tongue is German - but rest assured - Prador Moon sounds much nicer then Prador Mond :)Best Regards from SwitzerlandRoger
I know roll-up, rollie, coffin nail, gasper, cancer stick etc but I've never heard that one before, Phil.How would At the Edge of the Sand be in German, Roger - the orginal title.

A bit off-topic: I'm having a great time reading Prador Moon, Neal (have already received The Shadow of the Scorpion, The Line of Polity, Brass Man and Polity Agent, from Amazon), it's a great read.
