Poul Anderson was one of the most popular authors of science fiction in the 20th century. He started his career in the Golden Age of Sci-Fi in the 1950s, and was a regular contributor to science fiction magazines that were edited by John W. Campbell. During his lifetime, he received seven Hugo and three Nebula Awards and a Science Fiction Writers of America Grandmaster Award, among other honors.

The Burning Bridge is the story of fleet of ships seeking to colonize a distant planet. The trip is so long that most of the 3,000 passengers are kept in cryogenic sleep. As the fleet approaches the point of no return it receives a short message from Earth which may change everything; but the few that are awake will not have to make a life altering decision for everyone.

    " Very good second book to a series. I enjoyed getting to know more of the characters and to see their growth. Ended with a good cliff hanger to make you want to move on to the next book. "

    " Quick read. Good story. Weak character development. More of a short story than a complete novel. "

    " A short story originally published in Astounding, now available from Gutenberg et. al.

    I couldn't relate to any of the characters except possibly the female lead. Didn't work for me at all really, although the plot premise was interesting. "
