Scifi is often dated. The cutting edge speculation of yester-year rarely holds up to modern developments. In Black Star, the airplanes of the 23rd century (thats still 200 years from today) are driven by propellers, there is no concept of electronics, and the authors theory about the formation of planets seems almost silly.Was this review helpful?

However, once you get past those sorts of things, there is a lot of interesting ideas in there, ones I haven't read in other scifi stories. Which, when you consider it was written in 1930, is remarkable.
So if you can cut him some slack for not being prescient, you're in for an interesting fun read.
