Nexus

by Robert Boyczuk

The initial story line sounded promising. Returning from a 30 year space voyage, the crew finds their home planet destroyed by plague. But the snail's pace of the plot and unconvincing characters were too much for me to overcome. I found the book disappointing considering the high reviews - as always, decide for yourself.

Planet of the Damned

by Harry Harrison

As in his novel _Deathworld_, the author builds much of the story line around the idea of human physiological adaptations to alien environments. It was a pleasant surprise to find this Hugo-nominated book here. Thank you, manybooks!
