Great overlooked series
19 November 2019 | by sid_swiftSee all my reviews

Done with time and space so you can appreciate the whole scenario. For some reason it doesn't appear in some Wiki lists and it took me n age to remember Simon Day's name so I could source it. Very funny and I suppose a precursor to Brian Pern.
