Review by joeteo1
A solid piece of science fiction by one of the masters. Even though it was written back in the 70s it still holds up well today, which cannot be said for much of the science fiction from that decade. The depiction the world on the edge seems even more prescient today. Pohl springs some interesting surprises at the end. Quite literally in the last couple of pages.
Review by sgarnell
It's been a while since I read this. However, I just remember thinking how well written and fresh it felt. I didn't realize until much later that this book is a classic from years back. I think this proves that Pohl is really one of the great SF writers of all time. His work stands the test of time very well.
