Spinward Fringe Broadcasts 1 and 2: Resurrection and Awakening
on Jan. 27, 2011
I really liked this book! It describes a world many, many years in the future when many of the technological discoveries of today have matured and are in widespread use, eg., nanotechnology, transparent metals that are stronger than today's steel, cloaking devices of different types, etc. At the same time, the story, while somewhat like a soap opera, takes us into the lives of people who, although using these technologies, still exhibit the same strengths and weaknesses that we display.
I've just begun the next volume, and while I'm a wee bit confused about which Jake Valance is the "real" one, I've decided to go along for the ride. And it's a very good ride!!
