Leo Graf is an effective engineer. Safety Regs aren't just the rule books he swears by, he'd helped write them. All that changes on his assignment to the Cay Habitat. Leo is profoundly uneasy with the corporate exploitation of his bright new students--'til that exploitation turns to something much worse. He has never anticipated a situation where the right thing to do is neither safe nor in the rules. A past Nebula Award winner. Reprint.

Too simple. Fit for a junior high library.

A brilliant award-winning novel by one of the great masters of science fiction, Falling Free details the story of the "Quaddies," genetically modified humans specifically created to live and work in zero- G. What happens to them when they are suddenly rendered redundant by the invention of artificial gravity? And what happens also to the normal human engineer sent to work with them? A fantastic novel set as a prequel to the Vorkisigan universe.
