...and I suspect Mr Miller is smarter than Arthur C Clarke, the thinking mans SF writer.
This is not a tale where technological shortcomings are solved by some fantastic invention, Mr Miller has scientific reality running through this, and economics, and social science, and political science...and still gives you Buck Rogers/Adrienne Sheppard. It is a good read with action, intrigue and some depth for those of you who like thinking mans adventures.
I really liked A Fall of Moondust, and I really like Red Gold too.
Thoroughly recommended !
