Has anyone out there used bits of Jack McDevitt's science fiction as a sort of 'referee's guide to killing NPCs', or a 'referee's guide to interstellar archaeology'?

Jack seems to do an excellent job of both. He weaves mysteries under the genre of archaeological adventure -- less like Indiana Jones, and more like Aliens, in fact, since the crew regularly get carved up by local wildlife. Dumb scientists on parade.

His stuff reminds me of Chamax Plague, actually. And the stories are interesting enough to keep me reading and wanting more.
