"For big-time interstellar adventure, look no farther." Gregory Benford
The wormholes are open.
"Starplex is complex but swift, inventive but real-feeling, with ideas coming thick and fast." Gregory Benford
For nearly twenty years Earth's space exploration had exploded outward, thanks to a series of mysterious, artificial wormholes. No one knows who created these interstellar passages, yet they have brought the far reaches of space immediately close. For Starplex Director Keith Lansing, too close.
Discovery is superseding understanding. And when an unknown vessel with no windows, no seams, and no visible means of propulsion arrives through a new wormhole, an already battle-scarred Starplex could be the staring point of a new interstellar war . . .
"Starplex takes us on the ultimate grand tour: an elegant intergalactic ride with Sawyer's signature mix of cosmic concepts and solid characterization. A treat for the mind; I enjoyed it thoroughly." Jack McDevitt
"Sawyer's as good at world-building as he is at telling an exciting, satisfying story." Mike Resnick
