Godspeed *

Charles Sheffield
The Godspeed Drive. It is the faster than-than-light spaceship drive that made human colonization of the galaxy possible. But it was not invented by humans - it was found in the wreck of an alien ship that drifted into the solar system. No understood everything about how it worked, but it linked a hundred star systems together, and made even marginal planets like Erin in the Maveen system habitable. But one day the Godspeed ships stopped coming. Erin and the Forty Worlds around Maveen were cut off from Interstellar commerce, confined to the slow insystem shuttles that were the only spaceships that were left at Muldoon Port. Jay Hara grew up on isolated Erin, longing for the legendary days when Godspeed ships spanned the galaxy, and a young man's dreams could take him to the stars. So when an old, sick spacer named Paddy Enderton showed Jay some very strange devices and told him that he had found a Godspeed base out in the asteroid belt, Jay was eager to believe, despite the doubts of his uncle Duncan and his friend, Dr. Eileen Xavier. But when Jay's farm was raided, his animals killed and his mother beaten, by men searching for Enderton, he became convinced that there was some truth in Enderton's ravings. They won financing from the university, and have chartered a ship to take them out to the asteroid belt, in search of a small moving rock marked as Paddys Fortune in Enderton's navigation device. But the ship is not what they think it is. And the crew and captain have a very different, and deadly, agenda once they find the Godspeed base.

Brother To Dragons *

Charles Sheffield
Job Napoleon Salk is born sickly and penniless in a charity hospital, on the last day of the 20th century. It is a time of global economic collapse. He grows up in an orphanage, and then as a street child, in a society where everyone is poor except for a small group of rich elite. He is terrified as a child by stories of the Tandyman, a mysterious figure with burning hands. While still a teenager he has his one and only love affair, with Stella, one of the elite, who are off-limits to the likes of Job. For this sin he is exiled to the Great Nebraska Tandy, along with the scientists and technologists who have been made the scapegoat for all the world's ills. But the scientists have not stopped working, and the Tandies themselves are not what they appear to be. Job escapes at last, and carries with him a discovery that will change the world. (This book won the John W. Campbell Award for best science-fiction novel of 1992).
