Solar Express | L. E. Modesitt, Jr.

I very much enjoy Modesitt’s science fiction novels. Solar Express stands out among them. I finished reading the book and the next day started over at Chapter 1. [Plot summary here at the author’s web site.]

The “unwellness” of March and the new puppies led to an emergency department visit a week ago tomorrow. Home with more albuterol, having refused a hospital admission, thank you anyway. Oxygen level is recovering. Didn’t react too badly to the steroid of the moment, but I’m pretty certain it’ll be off the “safe” list after next time.

It has been a while since I indulged myself in a Modesitt “hard science fiction” reading binge. Solar Express is lovely and absorbing. It would be misleading to compare it to the “Ghosts” books, but there is a similarity in flavor, although not in any other way.

The man writes good books.
