"A tale which carries a Japanese fighter pilot from World War Two into a morally complex galactic venue 400 years hence [that] manages both to create a plausible protagonist and to match his understanding of the larger picture with ours." - SFE (online). "Unusual and thoughtful." - Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 4-49. "Competent, fascinating, but a little hard to follow at the end." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 39. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#89083).
