Finding “Fire upon the Deep”

This morning, we celebrated our return from flu-land by strolling down to a nearby second hand bookshop – where I found this:

A copy of Vernor Vinge’s amazing “Fire Upon the Deep”.  It’s what I think of as “proper” science fiction, with fascinating ideas as well as an excellent story.  Also, some of the most interesting aliens I’ve ever read about.
Just the right book to read on a sunny Saturday morning :).

You can read a description of the book here.
