Forward has never been very good with characters. No warp drives or transporters. Robert Forward is a genius and I love his books so so much. I enjoyed the came,ot, but I sometimes felt like Forward was doing an ice “Dragon’s Cwmelot. Mar 21, Devon rated it did not like it Shelves: And that’s how it went.
