Good for author on what happened to the Europeans fatal trip. Well balanced story of awkward first contact.

I enjoyed this sf book a lot. I just discovered Steele and hope to read more. He reminded me of the novels of the late Arthur C. Clarke.

A nice story about humans' first contact with aliens. The pacing is good, the characters are good, and the story has some nice twists. It's a good mix of hard sci-fi and soft sci-fi, with enough about the ships, etc. to satisfy hard sci-fi fans while keeping enough about people to interest fans of soft sci-fi and fantasy.

A unique side story to the Coyote series about an encouter with the aliens who have introduced themselves to the Coyote culture. It builds more background to the aliens and their concepts. I like the whole Coyote series, and this is a good addition.
