Redshift Rendezvous

"The novel is heavy on the science, but this does not detract from Stith's gift for character development. [Stith] gets better with each book."

1990-07-01 Summer 1990 Bakka Bookie Sheet, The unknown view
Redshift Rendezvous

"Its best parts... come from Stith's careful and amusing working-out of interstellar travel by means of a space in which the speed of light is 10 meters per second."

1990-07-01 July 1990 Drood Review of Mystery Ed Blachman view
Redshift Rendezvous

"The hardest part about reviewing Redshift Rendezvous is trying to figure out how to explain why it's as good as it is without giving away too much of the plot."

1990-07-01 Summer 1990 Science Fiction Review Gene DeWeese view
Redshift Rendezvous

Redshift Rendezvous

"One fine example is John Stith's Redshift Rendezvous, a hard SF mystery in which the theory of relativity holds one of the main clues to solving the crime." (in article on SF trends and genres, pg. 10)

"The elementary changes have now been rung, but there is probably further scope for intriguing time-dilation plots. One such is Redshift Rendezvous by John E. Stith."

1995-01-01 1994 Encyclopedia of Science Fiction unknown view
Redshift Rendezvous

"Stith is old school in the best possible way, and Redshift Rendezvous is my favorite. ... hard science fiction at its hardest, invoking the theory of relativity as part of life on a starship. It's also a space adventure. All happenings in the book check out science-wise. I know that doesn't really happen in SF books, but that's what I'm saying."
