Summary: On a distant planet and future, suddenly all the electronics are fried. A prospecting “Howard”, one of the genetically enhanced, nearly immortal humans, finds himself stranded all alone on a planet. He has to build a routine surviving the loneliness.
Review: You can literally feel the solitude developing into madness. If only the story wouldn’t be dragging over the count of the years, and the ending not half as unsatisfying.
It reads as some kind of prequel to a proposed “Sunspin” series, which never appeared due to the author’s death. There are other stories in this universe, and there is chronology here.
