Timemaster

Ture physics is mind boggling but firmly grounded in the science of today and the action never sto. Space entrepeneur Randy Hunter discovers a kind of space dwelling plant composed of negative matter which allows him to develop interstellar spaceflight and time travel not to mention acheiving all of his dreams winning the girl foiling his drug addicted rival and becoming an all around great guy Author Robert L Forward never lets us forget how wonderful and brilliant he thinks his hero is which came off as than a little self congratulatory since I couldn t shake the feeling that he was meant to serve as an alter ego for Forward himself There is much juvenile one upmanship between Randy and his cartoonish arch rival Oscar who is just as bad as Randy is good and whose dislike is never explained as anything than jealousy but then who wouldn t be jealous of such a terrific guy as Randy I found the key plot device of the Silverhairs to be ludicrous and uninteresting The sole saving grace of this book is some fascinating business toward the end concerning time travel and the interaction between the Randys of various time periods Had this aspect of the story been prominent it would have been a better book but instead it is buried among juvenile characterizations and dull plotting

Read the tale of Randy Hunter billionaire industrialist who communicates with aliens achieves inte. This novel is packed with so many great ideas it makes your head swim An author I truly miss Robert L Forward was one of the best hard science fiction writers The science is so astounding in this novel and another wonderfully thought out alien creature i will be the first to admit that the story tying all these great elements together is somewhat lacking at times the novel is still worth its weight in ideas

    This book stands as Exhibit A for why hard sf gets written off by critics as a genre that cares nothing for complex characterization Apparently Forward didn't realize that Mary SueGary Stu checklists are supposed to be used as models for how not to create a protagonist because Randy Hunter achieves a near perfect score fabulously wealthy?
