    So far, all that they could make out was a series of maddeningly vague shadows.Starplex is just an absolute plethora of big ideas An.absolute.PLETHORA And by big , I mean mind BLASTING.and challenging So how does one go about reviewing something like this It s basically a greatest hits of cosmological ideas, with elements of Star Trek The author intentionally draws par

    Though written in 1995, this Hugo nominated story is stylisticallylike those of the older golden age era of the 50 s, rather than thesophisticated character driven sort of modern type The likes of editors such as Campbell Jr or Frederik Pohl of Galaxy and IF would surely have jumped at serializing a story like this It s good fun old fashioned fast paced spaceship scifi with

    Pretty good, albeit super short It s impressive that Sawyer can pack as much in to a 300 page novel as would take other authors 5 600 pages But despite the amount of action and questions and answers, it still felt like it was lacking something Maybe taking a slightly slower pace would have lent the action and revelations a littleweight.Holy crap though, what action There are a ha

    I thought this novel was tons of fun I listened to Sawyer s novel, Factoring Humanity, a couple weeks ago, and it couldn t have beendifferent from this one Factoring Humanity is an intimate near future story that deals with big ideas but seen sort of on a small scale Starplex, on the other hand, is a big action packed space opera Sawyer is great at both of these kinds of science fiction.There are things

    This was truly an incredible book Starplex was a rare exploration of the Space Opera sub genre, and as Robert J Sawyer intended, did not focus on a military plot as the central theme, but rather, a peaceful group of scientists who s mission was to make peaceful contact with other races via a vast network of shortcuts or stargate type devices Yes, there is certainly space combat and battles, but what makes thi
