The Children of the Sky by Vernor Vinge
The Children of the Sky

Robert McCullough, June 17, 2011

Children of the Sky is a 400 page short story -- excellent in its way, but quite a step below the breathtaking creativity of the Fire in the Deep and Deepness in the Sky. Readers will be checking -- as I did -- Vernor Vinge's age to see if he will live long enough (he write about one book in this series per decade) to return to the main theme.
