"Until Earthset" follows a handful of characters through a period of rapid discovery; about themselves, their research and art, and about the sinister truths of conspiracy set in a world close enough to our own to resonate. The details of Boston and M.I.T., the vintage pop-culture references, and the science fact keep the characters grounded in reality. The relating of science details was particularly interesting for me, there were a lot of clever explanations that were quite satisfying. The characters of the story also felt true to life. They talked, interacted, and felt like people I might know in the academic world. The internal, emotional lives of the characters are presented as sharply as the science, at times poetically. And in some parts, I literally mean poetically.

I would recommend this book to all hard Sci-Fi fans, and in particular those in the Boston area, who will appreciate the details.

Format: Paperback
Lots of subtle use of cameos and references to people and things that you're familiar with . . . but their lives are running differently than the universe we all know. Some VERY subtle (King Richard version, indeed). Plenty of "science could have taken this leap with the right impetus" . . . certainly a lot more "toys" available to the public in this world. But the landscape has changed radically, and the power structure is much different, and then there's this murder mystery, who-dun-it underlying everything. Plenty to think about as you wind your way through a very different 1968.

Format: Paperback
this is the most worthless piece of garbage I've ever come across. The storyline is weak, the characters are confused, there is an overt attempt to show off familiarity with MIT..worthless..
