SHIPSTAR. Larry Niven. Gregory Benford. TOR.
Niven and Benford are noted masters of the science fiction genre, and this volume does nothing to detract from their long-established stature. Shipstar centers around a space expedition that intersects with a platoon of aliens who have taken possession of a star. In short order, many of the explorers are captured by the dwellers of this shadowy world that hovers outside of time. And thus launches our journey, the reader embarking on a deep exploration into a thousand hidden universes that exist just beyond the long arms of eyes.
