Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Last night, I finished reading a book by Allen Steele, called Oceanspace. Steele is known as an SF author, and is good at what he writes, but I'd almost call this book a technothriller, rather than straight SF. Still, the themes that are the background for the book are out of SF of the past, but this book isn't technology of the distant future, but probably could be done right now. Don't get me wrong; I found the book very readable and enjoyable in its own right, but it wasn't quite what I'd expected.
