As a long-time fan of the authors work, I bought this without really looking at details of the book. When it arrived I was shocked to find it such a short story and thin book for such a high price. The story itself is ok/good, and for those who have asked if it's a repackaged 'Pushing Ice' (which remains one of my favourite stories) it's not. It is new, it is ok to good in story terms but I cannot accept that this book is worth even a quarter of the nearly twenty pounds I paid. I feel stung by this and will exercise much more caution in the future. Beware!!
