Default Spider Robinson

I have a friend who's very very into Spider Robinson, so I've been reading his books over the past year or so. I have to say, he has a very unique style that I almost find abrasive at first, but it's effective at the same time. Great characterizations, very autobiographical, which makes him similar to Anne, but the similarity ends there. He definitely puts his political philosophies into what he writes, and though I don't always agree with him, I'm not bothered by it like I am with most authors who do that.

I'd say if you haven't checked him out, Stardance is probably the best book to do so. It's a pretty cool story, good characters.

Maybe a host can move this into the main "Other Authors" forum, since it's not about Elizabeth Ann Scarborough?

I'll have to check the book out.
