5.0 out of 5 stars excellent collection of thoughtful vignettes 13 April 2014

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories, all connected by the theme of colonisation of the outer system. Thoughtful stuff, with some great ideas neatly woven into some very human tales.

A beautiful collection of engaging stories, perfect for travelling with as none of them drag on. They do however build up quite a picture as they are read. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars extra ordinary 9 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
The Quiet War and Gardens of the Sun changed the way I thought about the solar system and transformed the desolate lifeless moons of its planets into places of beauty where mankind could not only survive but thrive. Life After Wartime is a collection of stories that mainly take place after the events in those books, and are jewel-like short tales about the everyday lives of the (extra) ordinary people who live on that new frontier. His writing really brings out the human dimension of a future in which mankind is leaving the cradle of Earth. Highly recommended if you enjoyed his other work.
