Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When Vernon's friend Floyd returns to Kansas after World War II, he brings back the usual souvenir German weapons as well as an entire top-secret aircraft formerly buried in the Arctic. Once the plane demonstrates its full capabilities, the two friends realize that they must guard it with their lives lest it fall into the wrong hands. Staying just one step ahead of government agencies and several clandestine organizations, Vernon and Floyd have to figure out how to direct the plane's internal intelligence system. Lake-winner of the 2004 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer and author of several highly praised short story collections (e.g., Greetings from Lake Wu)-presents a fast-moving, quirky sf adventure as fresh and entertaining as its two heroes. Lake is an up-and-coming sf writer to watch. For most sf collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
