- Whew, so much action here lately.
Well, I just read Poul Anderson's Starfarers. Good book, but not a
great one. It's about humanities first steps to the stars, first
contact, then returning to Earth several thousand years later. A
little light and airy. Not really what I consider hard SF, but a good
plot. I'm more the Beethoven-Wagner-AC/DC get in your face type, and
this book is more Bach-Mozart-Barry Manilow touchy feely.
Good read if you like his stuff. I have never been overly impressed
with Anderson, but I read it once in a while.
That's my $0.02 worth. Just remember, a critique, like advice, is
worth what you pay for it.
Gotta get to a bookstore and find something else to read now.
