Another Great Niven Pournelle Collaboration Novel


This is another favorite that has no sequel. All good Hard SF authors have written a big rock hits us novel. Clarke, etc. but this is one of my favorites. A bit gritty and very dated for it's slang and views, very much a novel of the seventies. My favorite character is a realist who seals up all his books in plastic and hides them when things start to look bad. Much done and overdone the post-apocalyptic novel is well represented here. Give it a read!
