The Reefs of Space by Frederick Pohl and Jack Williamson

Reefs of Space Reefs of Space by Frederik Pohl

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An interesting collaboration between 2 greats of Classic Science Fiction, The Reefs of Space combines hard science fiction, according to Hoyle, with fantasy-like world building in the depths of space.

The theories of Fred Hoyle, father of nucleosynthesis in stars and advocate of a steady state universe, were cutting edge physics when this book was written. His science is used in this fascinating novel to create the reefs of space, and many strange creatures. The protagonist explores these reefs and their inhabitants to create a “jetless drive” and free humans from the oppressive Plan of Man computer.

The book is an enjoyable read and the 1st novel in The Starchild Trilogy
