Hmm ... wasn't the "gripping hand" phrase first used in _The Moat Around Murcheson's Eye_ rather than _The Mote in God's Eye_?

Yes, it was. However he asked for the first book in the series, becuase the second book name was too easy.

There is a difference in the UK title vs. the US title.

The second book was titled "The Gripping Hand" BUT the UK title was "The Mote Around Murcheson's Eye."

Check it Here. []

Ah! I see! I didn't know that the book was titled differently in the States. I'm in Australia, and the 'Mote' title was used here. I wonder why it was changed for the overseas market?
