Montaro Caine, Sidney Poitier. Yes, that Sidney Poitier. It's his first novel, and it's pretty good. I didn't understand until a ways into it why it was classified as sci-fi, but it really is!
Sidney Poitier has written an SF novel? I'll have to check that out.
I'll be interested in hearing what you think of it.

I found that it got too preachy towards the end, and some of the dialog was very stiff, but overall it was a fun read.

Of course, the author's photo on the back cover doesn't hurt the experience either.
Sidney Poitier is a god, by any standard.
