Glad you liked the Sheffield - it's one my favorites and, yep, S-Space is a fantastic idea. Did you read the 80s version or the revised version? I've only read the original one.I finished Between the Strokes of Night by Charles Sheffield. Very good, as its reputation would suggest. Some great new ideas here and its also well written. I love the invention of S-Space - great stuff. Highly recommended if you like thoughtful yet pacy SF that spans the galaxy.
I'm now moving on to Merchanter's Luck, by C. J. Cherryh. Like the book I've just finished, this is another well regarded SF novel from one of the greats that I've not actually read before. Many books fall into this category, and I'm going to try and make a small dent in that particular pile over the next few months.
Merchanter's, which follows on from Downbelow Station in a smaller scale, is not on the same level as Strokes for me, but it's really good, too.
