On Craig Thomas' Sea Leopard

I have just put up three posts regarding Craig Thomas' nearly forgotten early techno-thriller Sea Leopard. The first is a review of the novel; the second a consideration of it in light of the country's naval drawdown (it's British focus is a rarity, Harriers and Nimrods instead of F-14s and P-3s saving the day); and the third comments on its handling of that ever-problematic issue, the treatment of science and scientists in fiction.

Again, even where it didn't quite work for me, it has an interest as a time capsule.
