Redshift Rendezvous

"Somebody at Ace should be ashamed of himself--first for delaying the publication of John Stith's Redshift Rendezvous from February to June 1990 and then for not publishing it in hardback."

1990-05-30 May 1990 DASFAx Don C. Thompson view
Redshift Rendezvous

"In our literature of ideas it isn't often that an author comes up with something startlingly new, innovative, imaginative, original, wonder-inducing and gripping, all in one novel. Stith has done it.... A remarkable achievement."

Redshift Rendezvous

"A fascinating excursion into the relativistic universe, where length contraction, time dilation, and like phenomena are real enough to affect your table manners. I was a willing captive in the story from page one."

1990-01-06 Author quote Author quote Jerry Oltion view
Redshift Rendezvous

"A lot of science fiction novels discuss hyperspace; Redshift Rendezvous puts you there! ... Easily Stith's best novel to date--and that's no small accomplishment."

"Redshift Rendezvous is a highly imaginative book, an engaging story working with mind-stretching concepts. I highly recommend it."

1990-01-02 Author quote Author quote C. J. Cherryh view
Redshift Rendezvous

"The list of science fiction authors who play the game the hard way by sticking to the rules of science is all too short. Now to that group which includes Clarke, Niven, Asimov, Bear, and Clement should be added the name of John E. Stith."

1990-01-01 Author quote Author quote Dan Simmons view
Redshift Rendezvous

"The Sense of Wonder is not dead! Redshift Rendezvous is an able and smoothly commercial blend of spectacularly extrapolated science and intrigue. John Stith has wrought something wonderful here."
