My search for this book was a long one. I first learned about the author and his book when I downloaded a computerized periodic table for the Macintosh written by John Cramer. (It was a Hypercard stack, I believe.) It was freeware that, incidentally, advertised his book Twistor. I put the book on my mental "to buy" list but it was YEARS before I spotted a copy on a bookshelf. (Still a first printing. Go figure.)
What goes around comes around, though, and I did wind up "paying" for Cramer's excellent periodic table with my purchase of his book. Meanwhile it's a fine book, a thoroughly well crafted hard science fiction tale with a little mystery and fantasy thrown in. Highly recommended to fans of "good old SF" -- like me! And infinitely more deft than, say, Crichton's recent expedition into vaguely similar territory.
