''but in ENDGAME ENIGMA (1987) a near-future Russian threat to dominate the world via armed satellite is recounted with leaden flippancy, and this brought to the fore a problem the author has presented to his readers from the first. Though most of them either share or accept his right-wing politics, and tolerate his editorial intrusions about personal betes-noires like the ecology movement, his extreme awkwardness as a stylist and creator of character has made his books difficult, at times, actually to read. When he abandons his strengths -- his hard-edged sense of how scientists think, and his joyful capacity to stretch the terms of space opera -- this gaucheness is difficult to ignore. It is to be hoped that he will return to the game of thought'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
