    1. The Outcasts of Heaven Belt pits an egalitarian society with strong women against male dominated, collapsing societies in an Asteroid belt its title homages Bret Harte, whose isolated California towns often feature sympathetic portraits of strong women.


    2. Ironic, isn t it that we began with everything and Morningside with nothing and look who failed We almost failed too than once Betha stared at the wall, looking through time So did Uhuru, and Hellhole, and Lebensraum But we had help From where From each other Planets like Morningside are so marginal any small setback becomes a disaster but they re the most common kind of habitable world they re all like Morningside in our volume of space But our worlds are within reach of one another We set up [...]


    3. This is a shelf of books that, counter to most popular fiction, offer nonviolent solutions to their plots First up, this 1982 novel about a desperate attempt to establish interstellar trade between colonies that have lost touch with Earth is really a good story of creative nonviolence used to avert war and arrive at a win win solution to a multitude of problems It s also a good read with sympathetic characters and surprising plot twists.

If you liked Babylon 5, with its emphasis on intercultural conflict and diplomacy, you might appreciate this story A small ship ventures from the frontier planet of Morningside to seek the renowned technology of the Heaven Belt system, only to find that their destination is a disaster zone, decimated by civil war After an unprovoked attack, the surviving crew find themselves caught between warring factions Rotating points of view enable readers to see all sides of the conflict there are no simpl [...]



    5.

    6. You can t tell at all from reading it, but this is set in Vernor Vinge s zones of thought universe, and parts of it are supposed to be co written by him So, interesting for that, and for being Joan Vinge s first novel.
