If not, they are certainly right up there. Are you the type of person that likes your science fiction heavy on the science? A new alloy may mean the difference between freedom and tyranny, but the forces of S. What about Web sites and Internet newsgroups? By the twenty-second century, mankind had stretched forth its hand to command the stars. It has great humour & pathos in its story.
