"Redshift Rendezvous represents an ingenious exploration of an idea in a manner that only science fiction can allow."
|Wed, 1990-08-01||Redshift Rendezvous||Reading for Pleasure||No. 12||Cindy Bartorillo||
"With one stroke, John Stith drags the theory of relativity out of the lab and dumps it right in our laps. Riveting hard science background."

"Stith has turned in a truly interesting hard sf novel. Everyone who has complained about the lack of scientific speculation in recent fiction owes it to themselves to pick up on this one."
|Sun, 1990-07-01||Redshift Rendezvous||Drood Review of Mystery||July 1990||Ed Blachman||
"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."
|Sun, 1990-07-01||Redshift Rendezvous||Science Fiction Review||Summer 1990||Gene DeWeese||
"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."
|Sun, 1990-07-01||Redshift Rendezvous||FOSFAX||July 1990||Timothy Lane||
"This is a very fine novel of mystery and suspense, in which hard-science happens to play an important role. This is another book I can recommend highly."

"Redshift Rendezvous contains an imaginative spark that makes science skip, hop, and do cart-wheels."
|Fri, 1990-06-15||Redshift Rendezvous||Library Journal||15 June 1990||unknown||

|Sun, 1990-06-10||Redshift Rendezvous||Rocky Mountain News||10 June 1990||Mark Graham||
"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."
|Fri, 1990-06-01||Redshift Rendezvous||Science Fiction Chronicle||June 1990||Don D'Ammassa||

|Fri, 1990-06-01||Redshift Rendezvous||Rave Reviews||June/July 1990||John J. Pierce||

|Fri, 1990-06-01||Redshift Rendezvous||Analog||June 1990||Tom Easton||
"If you love writers who play techy games with reality...pick this one up."
|Wed, 1990-05-30||Redshift Rendezvous||DASFAx||May 1990||Don C. Thompson||
"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."
