Editorial Reviews

Roland Green
The title of Forward's latest hard-science novel refers to 30 degrees above absolute zero, the temperature of the appropriately named planet Ice, which, with its insect-like inhabitants, orbits out beyond Neptune. Using remote-controlled robots, a human expedition explores the Ice city of Camalor and discovers that the society is essentially an organic fusion reactor ultimately intended to spread the planet's people throughout space. This is a classic example of the meticulous working out in story form of a highly sophisticated scientific concept--a form of which Forward, at his best, is one of the outstanding exemplars. He is at his best here. Highly recommended.
