01/20: Re-reading in preparation for the next book. I have been reading a LOT of so-called "hard science fiction" in the interim between now and the previous time I read this book, and was struck this time by how much this is NOT HSF. It doesn't try to be, and there's no rule it has to. There is an art to the so-so-called "science fantasy" book that requires just as much discipline as the HSF book. Like actual fantasy books, you have to make all your techno-gadgets, invented-science babble, and any other "natural" or technological infrastructure internally consistent. If these authors don't have a thick bible of World rules they consult every one sentence, I'll eat my reader tablet.

09/18: Too much repetitive action, not enough exploration and "stars uncharted." The book's description is a little misleading.
