J. Andrew Keith's full name was John Andrew Keith. This is his High School photograph... apparently Andrew was a bit camera-shy and this picture was the most recent one his brother, William H. Keith, Jr. had in his photograph album.


Make haste to the ramparts, men of the Legion!
Slam shut the gates and prepare for the storm!
The hard-riding horsemen of Mexico's rebels
Have run you to ground here at grim Camerone!
One band of heroes must hold out against them,
Hireling soldiers of every nation,
Who stand in the name of France though she has scorned them,
And stand for the pride of the Foreign Legion!

Hasten to arms, men of the Second,
And keep alive one spark of old liberties!
The Emperor's host has besieged Areopolis,
Spreading destruction and foul tyranny!
Though you are cast-offs and misfits and exiles,
Though you're outnumbered and badly outgunned,
You'll hold back the Empire until you go under,
And die for the pride of the Foreign Legion!

Hasten to battle, to die for the Empire,
Fighting a lost cause on stark Ganymede!
Bold Marshal F'Rujuk will lead the resistance
Driven by oaths and the Warrior's Creed.
Men of the Third check their spacesuits and rifles,
Still waging war though their comrades have run,
Honor, Fidelity, Duty still bind them
To stand for the pride of the Foreign Legion!

Hasten to action, down from your caverns,
Legionnaires trapped here on fair Devereaux!
The Semti have cut off the Fourth Foreign Legion,
And left it alone to face Man's greatest foe!
Every man knows he's destined to die here,
Under the light of a far distant sun,
So we'll make a last raid and at least go down fighting,
And maintain the pride of the Foreign Legion!

Hasten to muster the Fifth Foreign Legion!
Mount on your Sandrays and rev up the fans!
The black ships have landed, disgorging battalions
Of glittering Ubrenfar warrior clans!
Soldiers of Terra's Colonial Army,
Heirs to the ancient and proud tradition,
The battlefield calls you to Honor and Glory,
To fight for the pride of the Foreign Legion!


[Was to have appeared in the fourth book of the Fifth Foreign Legion series. Verses inspired by Rudyard Kipling and set to the tune "The Song of the Shield Wall" composed by Mellisa A. Williamson.]

Andrew was a rather prolific Science Fiction and Role-Playing Game author, and the bibliography presented below is in no way comprehensive. Several of these works were with various co-authors, most commonly his brother, William H. Keith, Jr.

* A note regarding pen names in the words of William H. Keith, Jr.:

"We shared several: Keith William Andrews, Keith Douglass, and H. Jay Riker. Back in the Traveller days, when he was doing a ton of writing for the old Journal of the Traveller's Aid Society, he used several pen names, including Keith Douglass and John Marshall, so it wouldn't look like the journal was entirely an Andrew Keith production."
