Topic: Hull Zero Three return to grand tradition?

I was excited to read of the imminent release of your space-based sci-fi novel Hull Zero Three. I've always hoped, after beginning to read sci-fi with The Way and Forge of God series, that you'd return to the space setting. The synopsis draws parallels with other books such as Brunner's A Maze of Stars, Aldiss's Non-Stop and James White's The Dream Millennium.

And it is auspiciously released on my birthday. Looking forward to it very much!

Indeed! To which I have to add ORPHANS OF THE SKY and CAPTIVE UNIVERSE and THE STARLOST on TV long ago. It's always fun and challenging to dip into a classic theme and play new riffs, and I think HULL ZERO THREE does that.

I wish you a happy birthday in advance, Mike!

Great to hear about this new book coming. Afraid I had conflated it with the coming work on the Halo game universe.

Looking forward ;)
