Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"The Robinsons' message -- that love and communication are what being human is really about -- is delivered with plenty of action, high-tech and character development."
The Chicago Sun Times
on STARDANCE the Novel, based on the award-winning Novella: "STARDANCE is a major work not only as entertainment but as a literary masterpiece."
The Los Angeles Times
"Spider Robinson is the hottest writer to hit science fiction since Harlan Ellison, and he can match the master�s frenetic energy and emotional intensity, arm-break for gut-wrench.�
Allen Steele
"Spider Robinson is a master storyteller�"
David Gerrold
[Spider Robinson] "embodies the best of Sturgeon, Heinlein, and Asimov."

When a gifted dancer named Shara gives up a life on Earth, & commits her life to zero-gravity dance, she has no idea just how important her style of dance will really be to Earth. A wonderful story of giving up one life to live another!
