I like to think of Elizabeth Moons Sci-Fi as the Conservative Rich people in space. It's pretty good fun, but shockingly weak on the pushing the boundaries type stuff. Last time it was polygamy, this time it's homosexual relationships - while they're not handled badly, it's not exactly ground breaking stuff.
Anyway, plenty of bang zap aimlessly running round to keep me entertained.
