The Aurora Award winning science fiction novel Starplex is back in print Human space exploration has expanded uickly over the last twenty years as they have made use of newly disc Pretty good albeit super short It s impressive that Sawyer can pack as much in to a 300 page novel as would take other authors 5 600 pages But despite the amount of action and uestions and answers it still felt like it was lacking something Maybe taking a slightly slower pace would have lent the action and revelations a little weightHoly crap though what action There are a handful of big space action seuences and a particular battle scene in the back half of the novel was jawdropping in its inventiveness It makes battle scenes from recent space set movies eg the JJ Abrams Star Trek movies look simplisticOther things I liked The alien races were pretty well fleshed out as were the dolphins slightly different from the uplifted dolphins of David Brin s books and not actually uplifted There was a real sense of discovery in the titular ship s mission and adventures There was a number of cool astrophysical and alien mysteries The physics employed by the author was pretty sophisticated and didn t talk down to the audience There was a particular conversation view spoilerwith a character from the far future about how life on earth will continue to evolve in the next 10 billion years hide spoiler

    Though written in 1995 this Hugo nominated story is stylistically like those of the older 'golden age' era of the 50's rather than the sophisticated character driven sort of modern type The likes of editors such as Campbell Jr or Frederik Pohl of Galaxy and IF would surely have jumped at serializing a story like this It's
