(#93992) TERMINAL VELOCITY. Bob Shaw.

TERMINAL VELOCITY. London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1991. Octavo, boards. Expanded edition. A reprint of VERTIGO (1978) that adds a prologue, the short story "Dark Icarus" (a.k.a. "A Little Night Flying"). In the twenty-first century, antigravity harnesses give everyone the power of personal flight. But in such a world how is traffic to be controlled safely, and how do policemen deal with juvenile delinquents who have the whole sky in which to play their dangerous games? A fine example of logical extrapolation conveyed in an ingenious plot with interesting characters." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 401.
