Books - Review

The Ragged AstronautsTwo planets orbit each other, Land and Overland, and share a common atmosphere. Humans live in a feudal kind of society and there are no metals. The ptertha are floating balloon-y animals that can kill if they get near enough, but are no more than a pest, until they get more aggressive, and the fatal illness they cause gets more contagious. So humans migrate to Overland in a fleet of hot air balloons.

Very good. Great set-up, plot, and the characters not bad at all for 80s sci-fi!
