Middle of Nowhere
NOW, I have to wait for the third installment. Gerrold has a good pace, weaving the main story in with several plot lines involving major and minor characters. It is fun to think of a series (or series of series) like Star Trek founded on this, but won't hold my breath. It feels more like he is showing off, tweaking and doing on paper what could never be done on film or TV - and that is okay.
I'm curious and need to go dig up "When Harlie was One," since a number of his series seem to depend on those AI systems....
