In this winner of the 2006 Nebula Award for Best Novella, there are big changes taking place on the tiny planet of Morobe's Pea. The planet has been sold to a new owner with a vision of utopia cribbed from Thoreau's Walden. But the original settlers don’t want to be Thoreau, and they're not afraid to wage a war of terror to reclaim their world.

Interesting sci-fi concept. The storyline kept me engaged. Main character had an 'everyman' feel to him. Almost anyone could find something to relate to in his situation. Whimsical without being completely ridiculous.

I thought this book dealt well with the subject of indoctrination and cultism. I was sad in the end that Spur went home and didn't go upside.. I think I would have.

The plot was satisfying, and the world in which the action takes place was close enough to be credible, and far away enough to be a worthy product of the author's imagination. Couldn't wait for the next instalment to arrive on my e-mail :-)

What if in a future where you could have anything, a group of people established a self reliant, subsistence society and isolated themselves from knowledge of the life style of the rest of the thousand worlds. This story is of an event in the life of one of those people.<br/><br/>It is well written with good character development. An interesting side light is the tie-in to Thoreau's Walden. Definitely worth the read.
