Stopping at Slowyear

A novel by

Library Journal
Pohl explores the effects of time on a planet whose orbit encompasses 19 earth years. While the inhabitants of Slowyear eagerly await a rare visitation by a merchant starship, the crew of the Nordvik have their own reasons for looking forward to contact with other human beings. Pohl's penchant for satire takes on more subtle hues as his latest novella comes to grips with humanity's capacity for self-delusion. Recommended for large sf collections.
