I've written sf and fantasy for publication since 1975...but I've written a lot longer than that. I have a background in Mediterranean archaeology, Latin, Greek, that sort of thing; my hobbies are travel, photography, planetary geology, physics, pond-building for koi...I run a marine tank, can plumb most anything, and I figure-skate.I believe in the future: I'm an optimist for good reason---I've studied a lot of history, in which, yes, there is climate change, and our species has been through it. We've never faced it fully armed with what we now know, and if we play our cards right, we'll use it as a technological springboard and carry on in very interesting ways.I also believe a writer owes a reader a book that has more than general despair to spread about: I write about clever, determined people who don't put up with situations, not for long, anyway: people who find solutions inspire me.My personal websites and blog: http://www.cherryh.comhttp://www.cherryh.com/WaveWithoutAShorehttp://www.closed-circle.net

I love this series! I think this book is a little better than the first one. It shifts focus from the mri Niun to the SurfTac Sten Duncan and his somewhat conversion to mri to ultimate become a peace mediator.Great read!
