I haven't seen this. Is it good hard SF?
I seem to recall that it was published in the time I stop by the
house I'll check...I NEVER throw a book I like away. not really good hard
SF....I'd say the giggle factor is about 50%

Please, it is called "South Pole Accelerator". The reason I name my
inventions/concepts is to assist in my claim to them- the same reason
