Can we have a book with interstellar travel and world-to- world contact, but not allow anything to travel faster than light, or employ one of the usual magic wands like wormholes, ansibles, space tunnels, or interstellar jump points? It sounded impossible, but there was the challenge. I wanted to write such a book. Hard science fiction ought to be hard not because it’s hard to read, but because it’s hard to write. I also wanted to impose another requirement.

It first appeared in the March to June 1985 issues of Analog Science Fiction/Science Fact before being published by Baen Books in July 1985. The story is divided in two vastly separated time periods: the near future of 2010, and the far future of 29,000 AD. Due to the unique technological mechanisms of the novel, the same cast of characters appears in both parts, though it is not a time travel story.

Charles Sheffield is a new writer to me, in terms of novels. Judging by his award nominations, I think he is known primarily for hard sf short stories and science articles in Analog and similar publications.

After this was shown to be incorrect in the 1990s, Sheffield revised the novel, completely replacing the ending, and Charles Sheffield is a new writer to me, in terms of novels.
