Praise for Reckoning Infinity
“A taut, solidly written adventure with well-handled character interactions…this is his best outing so far.”–Kirkus Reviews
“[Stith] has always had a real talent for describing bizarre environments…will offer fans of hard SF much to satisfy their sense of wonder.”—Publishers Weekly
“John Stith is among the finest writers of hard science fiction in the world. … In what can best be described as `The Six-Million Dollar Woman’ meets `Rendezvous with Rama,’ Stith will keep you turning the pages as he reveals the marvels of an alien `moonscape.'”—Rocky Mountain News
“vividly imagined, from the big opening scenes of the shuttle-habitat collision, to the descriptions of the medical procedures used to save Alis’s life, to the small details of working (and being injured) in spacesuits.”—Locus
