You'll need a Spectrum Emulator:

This has a free 30 day trial (should be enough) and perhaps Neal will be back blogging by then anyway :)

Trying to search and buy Departure in India, but getting a hard time doing it. The literary scene is dominated by romances and all other crap you can literally count on fingers people who read Sci Fi here, yet i will only stick to writing Sci Fi

Aha, open thread. I'm reading Departure, the first Neal Asher book I have read. I'm loving it, BUT: so far it seems to rely a lot on human population growth as the cause of so many problems.

Population growth on its own should be no problem: more brains to solve problems. (Val on Mars seems to understand this.) Where are the 3D farming and hydroponics on Earth?

Of course it is the Committee preventing such innovation. The shortage is caused by a lack of free markets not overpopulation.

So why does Saul keep lamenting the stupid over-breeding human race?

I am hoping he realises all this by the end of the book.
