I finished reading Redshift Rendezvous, by John E. Stith, last night. I needed a little light reading filler, and this book provided that. I first read this book back in the summer of 1992, when I was living and working in Ottawa as a co-op student. John E. Stith's science fiction writing style is pretty good, with engaging characters, and thoughtful science fiction themes and concepts. This novel is a sci-fi/action/mystery story, set mostly in space aboard a spacecraft traveling through hpyerspace.
Reading this book left me wondering, is John E. Stith still with us? After this novel, Stith penned a few others, including the wonderful Manhattan Transfer. Then, he seemed to just stop. I did a little digging, and it seems like he's still with us. So, either he's stopped writing, or his publishers have dropped him. Either way, it's our loss.
