I’ve found an interesting new author: Eric James Stone.
I was digging around in the Mormon Dialogue and Discussion Board in inestimable boredom one night this week when I happened upon mention of a Nebula-winning Mormon-themed science-fiction novellette entitled “That Leviathan Whom Thou Hast Made”. I thought to myself that that was certainly news, so I hopped right over and had a look at the story. Wow! Is all I can say! Well, obviously I have more to say, or else this post would end right here, but Wow! certainly applies.
If you are a science-fiction nut, like me, then you gotta read this. It won’t take long (it’s just a novelette), and it is very interesting indeed.
Eric James Stone has made an important contribution to the varied menagerie of fictional extraterrestrial life-forms (is there any other kind?) and come up with a rather unique interstellar transportation system. If he’s planning a novel using these two plot devices, sign me up, because I want to see what he does with them!

Now I got something more to read while waiting for Jerry Pournelle to publish something new!
