I got around to reading this.  It's a good read, though hardly profound, but
didn't strike me as particularly Wolfean.  If I had to describe it in that
manner, I'd call it a cross between Vance, Iain M. Banks, and perhaps van
Vogt (perhaps, because I've read very little van Vogt, and that long ago).
