Unashamedly smartLets face it, SF can be quite a dull read these days, but once in a while you get a gem like this. Glad to see this book strike at a lofty and squarely ambitious target - to be smart and provocative and challenging. In a way there is something bold about this book, SF no less, that does not shy away from being intelectual. There, I've said it. Intellectual. Not pretentious. Just intellectual.
I can see the readers coming back to this book and reading it again and again and then later yet again. Also, I can see the author expanding this peek into his private universe and building on it and doing it again and again and yet again. Can't wait.
