About the Author
Edward M. Grant spent his childhood in the South-West of Britain and studied Physics at Oxford, but now lives in Canada. He wrote magazine articles and worked on numerous indie movies in and around London, including co-writing a vampire feature that was later shot in California. He has travelled the world, been a VIP at several space shuttle launches, survived earthquakes and a tsunami, climbed Mt Fuji and visits nuclear explosion sites as a hobby. He grew up on pulp horror and SF novels and still has a soft spot for both. However, his background as a physicist helps him write stories toward the harder end of the SF spectrum.

Between this story's e-pages I found great writing, humor, poker-playing spaceships, smart-mouthed characters -- even the ones with no mouths -- and the silent undertow of Something To Think About. (But only if I feel like it.)
In short, it's all this meat-bag wants from sci-fi, and then some. I'll revisit Grant's galaxy as often as the author will have me.
Amazon limits my enthusiasm to 5 stars, but I'd give it 7 if I could.
