Something special and worth reading, 19. September 2000
I loved this book (or compilation.) I purchased it a few years back at an airport newsstand, looking for a little easy reading. Short of one ar two other SF novels, I can say I have never read a better story. Mr. Vinge has invented a heck of an idea in his "bobble" In fact I spent many a moment thinking how the world would be a different place if such an item existed. I believe the caliber of a novel can be determined by how much time you spend thinking about it.....this book does just that. In fact both of Vernor Vinge's new novels are quite excellent as well and I can't tell you how excited I was to see them sitting on the shelf at my local bookstore.
