His novels combine thought-provoking characters with engaging storytelling, and range from the adventures of the Star Rigger universe (Star Rigger's Way, Dragons in the Stars, and others) to the ongoing, character-driven hard SF of The Chaos Chronicles—which begins with Neptune Crossing and continues with Strange Attractors, The Infinite Sea, and Sunborn.

Review by: Tim Hume on Nov. 17, 2012 :
Excellent read. Would also recommend other books by this author (e.g. The Chaos Chronicles - Books 1-4 (and hopefully number 5 in the not too distant future!))

Review by: John Tendys on March 09, 2011 : (no rating)
A slightly old-fashioned sci-fi, somewhat in the style of space operas. But, a very good straightforward story which you won't want to stop reading once you start. The title seems to derive from an episode in the story, but the story is about colonisation, conflict between divergent human types, and general political skulduggery. Aliens largely figure as bit players, though a few are subsumed as honorary humans. While character development, etc. are not part of the genre, I especially like Carter's style of self-deprecating and reluctant hero. The other aspect of sci-fi stories I look for are new ideas. Carter's "energy flux" underlying the normal universe permitting faster-than-light travel through the whimsical image of airplanes and sailing ships is most enjoyable and gives some plausibility to FTL. There are even female characters of significance and a touch of sex. What more could anyone want.
