Reviews

Review by: Firebringer Press on Oct. 17, 2012 :
Definitely one of Neil's best! I particularly recommend getting the updated "author's cut" version, which I purchased via Smashwords. I also own the original mass market paperback release, but I find what was excised from the edited version adds texture and depth. Imaginative, philosophical and funny, with the feel of later Heinlein novels.
