a unique story about travel to a strange world where the laws of physics are different. Science is a mix of modern and stoneage and used items get better no worse with time.

Another good Brin book. "Practice makes perfect" brings a whole new meaning when the physics have gone a bit strange.

The upperclass has even more of a reason to make the lowerclass do all the work.
