I did read Tau Zero long ago but had forgotten it. I went to Wikipedia to see which other of Poul's novels that I had read, since I remember reading a number of them back in the 60s and 70s, and found this bit of trivia:
He had 1 daughter, Astrid (!!), who is married to science fiction author Greg Bear.
I like Greg Bear and have read a number of his novels also. Wow, I never would have guessed the connection.
