David Dvorkin
"In his lively new novel, Pit Planet, David Dvorkin takes us on a headlong trip not only between planets, but over, under, and through worlds of greed, sex, politics, intrigue, and adventure, of miners and mindpickers, cavesnakes and triple-crossers. Pit Planet is an absorbing mix of hard science and action sf, with the unmistakable Dvorkin touch."

Intricate, elegant, and almost hypnotically told, this tale of gods held captive will hold you captive, too."
