In the early nineties, I was reading a science fiction series that was written by two authors. The series was not complete at the time, but there were probably like four to six books in the series.
I don't remember much about the book except for a few peculiarities. At the beginning of the series, it is clear that one author is attempting to introduce computer-based slang for the characters. I think one character actually says "shove that up your disk drive", or something to that effect. I suspect that the other author wrote the second book, because this was completely dropped, and then reintroduced in later books. Even as a young person, this produced quite a jarring effect.
The only other thing I can remember about the series is that there was some kind of female insectoid creature. At one point, she loses a limb, but isn't too worried because she can grow it back.
Perhaps that is too little to go on, but I figured I'd try.
