REVIEW WORLDS by JOE HALDEMAN (WORLDS BOOK 1) WORLDS is an exciting, engrossing, tremendously thought-provoking science fiction story, every bit as important a sci fi classic as on its original publication in 1981. The eponymous "Worlds" are a collection of orbiting colonized asteroids, with all the variety one might expect: worlds focused on religion; corporate culture; bloodlines. Perhaps even more importantly, WORLDS' protagonist is a strong, empowered, young female (some might say "headstrong"). Imagine that, when this story originally published 33 years ago! Amazingly progressive! I'm anticipating continuing the series.
