Q: Old SF novel, set on a military ship, one character can't order spaghetti and meatballs because of sudden mid-voyage rationing?

LorendiacThis one is a real longshot. I won't be surprised if nobody can identify it. I read this book sometime in the early-to-mid-1980s. Science fiction novel, checked out from a public library, written in English, and I am pretty sure it was in hardback. Told in the third person, with multiple viewpoin...

Q: Why did Tolkien italicise ‘cram’?

FivesideddiceIn The Hobbit (or at least in my edition, HarperCollins 2011), the word ‘cram’ is italicised wherever it appears. Cram is (as according to Chapter XIII, Not at Home) biscuitish, keeps good indefinitely, is supposed to be sustaining, and is certainly not entertaining, being in fact very uninteres...

Q: Did Timothy Zahn name Grand Admiral Thrawn after himself?

DJ Spicy DeluxeIt's always struck me that Grand Admiral Thrawn's name rhymes with that of his creator, Timothy Zahn. Thrawn also doesn't seem to be based on anything in English or anything else I'm familiar with. Was Thrawn meant to sound a lot like Zahn, or is there some other reason he got that name and it's ...
