I have finished book 2 of this series a while ago but have not got around to reading the rest of the series yet. Hope you have enjoyed it.
I wish I had read the books before I watched "Game of Thrones" as it would have been a lot clearer.Also now when I am reading I obviously visualize the characters with the actors who played the parts. However I really enjoyed the first two books and can't wait to read the rest!

Stephanie Ancient Shores Ancient Shores by Jack McDevitt

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


How did I miss Jack McDevitt? I've been reading SF since I was nine years old in 1962. This is fabulous. The characters, especially the Native Americans are portrayed unstereotypically, the governmental politics is eerily prescient for today! Who doesn't want to dig up a ship (space or otherwise) in their backyard--plus I hear there's a related newly published book called Thunderbird.
Jack McDevitt, I can see your interesting life and past in the books, pilots, soldiers, teachers, thinkers.. plus in the last two chapters all Jack's favorite authors in science fiction appear and they are mine too!!
