The Big Idea on John Scalzi’s “Whatever” about the ideas behind Grand Central Arena

Ryk Spoor’s “Grand Central Arena” — Imaginative Space Opera by Barb Caffrey, Shiny Book Review: “…an imaginative piece of space opera that’s set on a near-future Earth where artificial intelligence — AI — is taken for granted.”

Goodreads – Alan: “With Grand Central Arena, Ryk E. Spoor hits precisely the target he was aiming at. This paperback’s lurid cover promises, and its sprawling 671 pages deliver, pulp science fiction: larger-than-life characters, jaw-dropping settings and super-science spectacle, both evocative of and explicitly dedicated to E.E. “Doc” Smith, the early sf giant and creator of the Skylark of Space. And it’s a page-turner. Spoor knows how to start a story.”

Fantasy Book Critic, Liviu Suciu: “‘Grand Central Arena’ is space opera in the grand old tradition – “costume” aliens, heroic and plucky humans – but with modern sensibilities and awareness of current speculations in cutting edge physics.”
