I remember reading a science fiction novel based on a similar idea perhaps 20 years ago. It was pretty good.


Man, the perils of tech. I read these comments over lunch at my desk, bought the book on my phone and read the first chapter. It's _way_ too easy to spend money these days.

On the plus side, I think I'm really going to enjoy this one. Thanks for the recommendation. :-)

Another recommendation for Redshift Rendezvous. It REALLY is science fiction, and not just fiction (most things classified "sci-fi" these days are pure fantasy; where's the science in e.g. Star Wars?).

It's a good story, (acceptably) good science (for a story book), and if I recall correctly from 20 years ago, very well written.
