    Absolutely you should get it. Fantastic book! Hard SF with some exotic scenarios - life on the surface of a neutron star, a collapsed remnant of a supernova. A human expedition comes to study the star, and during the course of the human's stay (or orbit) around the star, the civilisation on the surface is shown to advance very rapidly, since their experience of time is much faster. Dr. Forward has written some great SF books, and some of his academic contributions were utilised by Neal Stephenson in the descriptions of technology/massive structures and the physics behind them in the final third of Seveneves.

    Cool! We should all try reading it together sometime, like a book club experience. It's such a great story!

    I'm up for it whenever, so you and Tom decide, if he also wants to join in.

    Yeah why not. Will have to wait til I've finished current one though, which at the rate I'm going will be November (possibly next week).
