Read in September, 2007

In the vein of the Ringworld books, here's the story of a deep-space mission that comes across a helictical (I just made that word up) set of worlds -- basically a big spring with the sun dropped down the column like a marble, and the world corkscrewing around it. Where world is a series of banded-off civilizations, each separate and unaware of the other, except for vague references to the Builders who may or may not have constructed the helix. All in all some satisfying hard SF, especially for folks who like Ringworld and things like Dyson spheres, or that one Orson Scott Card one with the furry people.
