Centauri Dreams… August 27, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
I’d forgotten the Songs of Distant Earth was set there – perhaps Clarke’s last good novel. John Barnes and Buzz Aldrin’s Encounter at Tiber was pretty good. I’d forgotten the aliens in Footfall by Larry Niveln and Jerry Pournelle were from those parts.
I can’t help but feel that the discovery this week will be a shot in the arm to new fiction set in that system, though, as will be noted here today, views are mixed as to what is practical and feasible in the near to middle future.
