Reviews of In the Ocean of Night (1976)

This one is really dated.
The tieing in of bigfoot/yeti was probably regretted by Benford later on:
he never mentions that again. Another conveniently forgotten point was the revelation of the main character results in his ability to see 'essences' that machines cannot. This is mentioned once more but otherwise ignored in later books.
