Re: Starship Size Argument™ thread

Well, it was deemed a "city in space" by a clever advertising copy writer - not because it met any other criteria for the description. I remember reading that blurb on the back of Blish's first collection of paperback adaptations for Bantam press, back in 1966, and thinking it was a wild exaggeration.

I wonder if it was actually a cute call-out to Blish's own Cities In Flight.
