This is the first in the Kensho series that also includes Kensho, Satori and Wanderer. A very enjoyable blend of science fiction and martial arts. I was particularly fond of the way that the practice of Zen was depicted and the role it plays in this and the other books. If you haven’t read much in the way of non-fiction about Zen Buddhism, this book might serve as a good introduction (with the caveat that, because it examines these ideas, it’s a little heavy on exposition).
