"A knockout . . . In science fiction there is only a handful of books that stretch the mind--and this is one of them."--Arthur C. Clarke "Bob Forward writes in the tradition of Hal Clement's Mission of Gravity and carries it a giant step (how else?) forward."--Isaac Asimov "Dragon's Egg is superb. I couldn't have written it; it required too much real physics."--Larry Niven "This is one for the real science-fiction fan."--Frank Herbert "Robert L. Forward tells a good story and asks a profound question. If we run into a race of creatures who live a hundred years while we live an hour, what can they say to us or we to them?"--Freeman J. Dyson "Forward has impeccable scientific credentials, and . . . big, original, speculative ideas."--The Washington Post
