Review of “Red Star, Winter Orbit” (1983)


William Gibson (writer), Bruce Sterling (writer).

The Soviet Union, triumphant in the Cold War, no longer needs the space race for propaganda or military purposes. An old space station is de-orbited.

As Gibson himself stated, it doesn’t go far enough. I would have enjoyed a larger take on the Cold War, equivalent to The Man in the High Castle (1962).
