‘Nice Self-Contained Science Fiction’
A nice, self-contained science fiction story. (There is a follow-up but I haven’t read it - it’s not one of those big-books-cut-in-two-to-double-the-profit.)
The setting is deep enough to be interesting. Not everything is explained right away, and sometimes things aren’t explained at all, leaving you to figure it out. Characters are more than paper-thin too. I found it quite readable.
