The amazing tale finally resumes with Pegasus in Flight, the superb new novel about one of the hottest topics in sf — telepathy.
I like space drama, that’s my fantasy bread and butter, think Heinlein. Fascinating what the human mind can do when part or all the body is damaged. Fluffy to a fault, the future depicted in this work is simultaneously utterly terrifying and authoritarian, and that’s the good guys.

Four stars because this was a favorite of my adolescence, but I have to say re-reading it reminded me of an argument I got into with a middle-aged man, back in cmcaffrey misspent youth. She died in Book ratings by Goodreads. But the book is showing its age in its racial and gender attitudes.
