The September 2011 issue of Lightspeed Magazine (issue #16) features a reading by one of the finest narrators around, Harlan Ellison! There’s also a text interview with the author, David Brin |HERE|. Asked what inspired the story Brin sez:
“Most of the universe is the regions between galaxies, yet no stories are ever set in that vast emptiness. I like a challenge.”
And based on this you might suspect, rightly, that the plot tries to answer a problem in physics.
By David Brin; Read by Harlan Ellison
