5.0 out of 5 stars Best Entertainment in years, 14 Jun. 2005

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't believe no one has written a review for this book yet - it was fantastic. If I could get more of this author I would, there is a sequel but it is slow in getting here.
The book is really a series of short stories and novelettes, two-thirds of which tie in with the story in the synopsis. What the synopsis does not describe is the quality of the story. The way it is written makes the whole daft scheme quite plausible. The essential theme to the whole thing is that of problem-solving. Faced with terrible dilemmas the heroes have to think their way out. And they come up with amazing solutions. There is some fighting in there too. By the end of the story you will want more of the heroes tales, they are men to be admired.
About a quarter or third of the book was other short stories in the same 'universe' but not directly tied into the first lot. These are equally well written and captivating, but don't last long enough to get hooked.
Don't let the synopsis or title put you off, it is very well written and thoroughly enjoyable book (if you like science fiction and don't mind no explanation of how their space ships get anywhere)
