It took me longer to get into this one than his other books--the entire first section of the book, about 80 pages, didn't really catch my interest. About halfway through the second section I was hooked, and his endings always leave me moved, this one being no exception. The man knows how to draw characters that are nuanced, real, and sometimes unforgettable. I'm going to give it some time, then read it again--this time knowing what's ahead will make the first part of the book seem different I think. This particular edition of the book is a reprint by Old Earth Books. and I'm afraid they may be extinct. I tried to get ahold of the publisher with no results and their website looks dated to the point of abandonment. I wish they--or somebody--would undertake to make hardcover editions of "Still I Persist in Wondering," and "In the Company of Glory," and wish also for a volume of his uncollected stories. I think he was one of the great SF writers of all time, and everybody should read his stuff. ( )
