Review quote

"The ultimate grand tour!" - Jack McDevitt

"For big-time interstellar adventure, look no farther."
-Gregory Benford

"Starplex should gladden the hearts of readers who complain that nobody's writing real science fiction anymore, the kind of story that has faster-than-light spaceships and far-off planets and interstellar combat. Sawyer deftly juggles half a dozen sweeping questions of cosmology (not to mention everyday ethics and morality) while keeping the story moving ahead full speed.
-Asimov's Science Fiction

"Highly recommended."
-Library Journal
