Sawyer's got his strengths and weaknesses (he's not the most elegant prose stylist, but he gets the job done). I haven't read a new one of his since the Neanderthal trilogy (which was great fun), though I have his latest on my shelf, called Rollback, which was serialized in our sister publication a few months ago. If you get the first Neanderthal book, Hominids, check out the acknowledgments page for a familiar Hypnos forum members' name. It won the Hugo too, (nothing to do with me). ;)

My fear is the last book drops back into preachiness.
