and because it'll satisfy your need to see some folks get through a pretty sticky situation.
McCarthy's a grea SF writer. This seems like early stuff. Get to know a simpler, lower-key McCarthy here.
As far as the main story, just wow! Aliens suspended in time deep within the gravity well of a black hole, an ancient war that spans millennia, some puzzling and impossible artifacts that can only be made with intelligence, but no intelligent aliens have been found. Lots of good science and scientific speculation.
I am reading the Android's Dream by Wil McCarthy, and it is a hoot AND a serious novel as well. Mr. McCarthy has my respect and gratitude for providing some seriously entertaining SciFi, which is all I ask.
