    For those that don't read sf they might find the first 5 10 pages of most sf novels hard to deal with because most sf authors make assumption

    I have enjoyed Cherryh in the past but maybe I was flexible back then I am finding her less satisfying lately I don't understand why these societies of hers must have for example slaves Why can't the people who arrive in these feudal ish places desperate to save the world from destruction take the short cut of sending say sir uesting person on some kind of flying machine with his message instead of sending him all the way back th
