About a quarter of the way through: loving it, a classic Mack book with a style and sense of continuity that goes right back to his A Time to...
duology & Wildfire
(as well as including more of his Orion work from Vanguard
too). Despite being standalone, this volume links really well to The Persistence of Memory
: the sense of trilogy or mini-series is good. Also, it feels like it will have HUGE consequences. And how great is it to have Data back, or new-Data present: he's different and
familiar. And written so well.
