Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

James Benton is surprised at the role the mineral jacksonite has played in his life. He's not alone: jacksonite has had an immense influence on everyone in the galaxy. It could be said that jacksonite has made the current galactic civilization possible. Now jacksonite has brought Benton to Colliery, the only world where the mineral is found, the headquarters of the immensely powerful and wealthy Jacksonite Corporation. He will know this world, and liberate it -- and in process liberate something deep within himself. . . .

From the Inside Flap

"In his lively new novel, Pit Planet, David Dvorkin takes us on a headlong trip not only between planets, but over, under, and through worlds of greed, sex, politics, intrigue, and adventure, of miners and mindpickers, cavesnakes and triple-crossers. Pit Planet is an absorbing mix of hard science and action sf, with the unmistakable Dvorkin touch."
- Connie Willis, author of Doomsday Book

"Like the great classics by Asimov, Bester, Clarke, and Heinlein, David Dvorkin's Pit Planet is intelligent, thought provoking, exciting Science Fiction entertainment at its finest. . . . a wonderful reading experience. Truly enjoyed it. The sections underground strongly reminded me of the sense of wonder I experienced the first time I read William Hope Hodgson's The Night Land. Cheers for Benton! Pit Planet packs a powerful punch."
- C. Dean Andersson, author of the Bloodsong Saga

"Pit Planet is a pit bull of a novel! It grabs hold and won't let go!"
- Nina Romberg, author of Shadow Walkers

"David Dvorkin reminds us that human nature will follow us into the future. A compelling exploration of the causes and consequences of monopoly."
- Wil McCarthy, author of The Collapsium

"David Dvorkin's Pit Planet is a box of puzzles. Each time a question is answered, a new question is revealed. A fun story with an intriguing and believable cast of characters."
- John Stith, author of Redshift Rendezvous
