A short trip to the past. An equally short trip to an interesting world.
I read First Flight traveling a short distance via airplane. During this short trip, I was introduced to a world that used a wonderful limitation on time travel. Kowal's style is easy to digest and had me turning pages to find out how the mission would go. I like the use of an A-typical system for time travel. I hope to see more of this world and in greater length.
