File Under Fiction
on 2 October 2000
I got this book on the strength of 'Dark moon' expecting a factual book containing the hard science behind the claims made in the latter half of 'Dark Moon' - alternative propulsion systems, geometry, and gravity. It is nothing of the sort.
This really should have been sold as a science fiction book as the ideas are very good however it is written in a very tedious way often mentioning numbers to n decimal points - possibly to re-inforce that it is a "factual" account. It is asking a lot of people in this day and age to simply believe the content - more questions are raised than evidence is provided. One might as well believe in fairy tales.
If the author really wanted to "infuse" (an often used word in the text) people with these ideas would it have not been more effective and certainly more entertaining if it were written as a no-holds barred SF classic?
