    Timescape by Gregory Benford

    Difficult one this; the core science fiction concepts and story were good, the horrendous sexism not so much so. Timescape was published in 1980 and set partly in the early sixties and partly in the ‘future’ late nineties. The later sections are set in a world of ecological collapse with...
