reviewed Startide Rising (Uplift, Bk 2) on
One of the most thought provoking books I've ever read. It it questions how we treat animals, the morality of genetic engineering, and our place in the universe. Satisfying read, and a great anthology. As a series it stands with the great anthologies Founation, Dune, Revelation Space- Absolution Gap, and the Academy Series ( Omega-Chidi-Odesssy) by Jack McDevitt.
