What that boils down to in Gradisil is a lot of daft wish-fulfilment technology coupled with some glaring oversights.
What that boils down to in Gradisil is a lot of daft wish-fulfilment technology coupled with some glaring oversights. Firstly the technology that the book is based on: flying high-atmos planes that can haul tonnes of cargo much more cheaply that using rockets.

Gradisil is a science fiction novel by British author Adam Roberts. Gradisil takes place over several generations of the Gyeroffy family, the novel's timeline spanning from 2059 to the first half of the 22nd century, circa 2130. On these generations hang the novel's basic plots – a murder story, a domestic story, a political story and a revenge story. The first involves Klara Gyeroffy and her father, an aeronautics hobbyist, in their establishment of the low Earth orbit settlement of the Uplands.

Gradisil is a multi-generational story of murder, betrayal and revenge. Well, I think I can see why this book is not taking off in America (Roberts is British). It is told through the eyes of three characters and against a background where mankinds rush into space has faded away leaving individual pioneers to force their way independently into space after the collapse of the big government space agencies. It does not paint the US or NASA in a very kind light, and makes some rather pointed - though deserved.
