Bookseller and Blogger Denzil Pugh on 'The Alien Effect'
. . . you must read the first two books first before this one. . . .
The third book continues Neeper's quest of bringing a palatable model of steady-state economics to the attention of the world. And unlike most other scholars on the subject, she's trying to do it through the application of the system in a fictional world. And unlike most other Science-Fiction writers, she accomplishes her goal with remarkable, robust characters with a similarly developed culture.
