the Peace War
Monday, August 29, 2005

Imagine you're an upper level anti-war bureaucrat. Imagine one of your scientists could encapsulate space and time in impermeable bubbles. Imagine you decide to end war and create peace by enclosing all the opposition in your bubbles and becoming the de-facto ruler of the world... If you managed to imagine all that, you have the setting for Vernor Vinge's the Peace War. Like the rest of Vinge's work (here for example), this has excellent plotting and imaginative science. It's a treat worth reading more than once!
