Boy if you didn't like "Citizen of the Galaxy," then you'd probably hate "The Day After Tomorrow" which has the PanAsians conquering the U.S.

I wonder if you'd like Glory Road?


Sorry! That was an exclamation, not a descriptive adjective. I like everything. Seriously. I would say, based on my many-years-later recollection, that Citizen of the Galaxy was probably not his best work. I'd also say that of 'The Day After Tomorrow' and 'Glory Road'. But I enjoyed reading them.

Tnagent - I saw Steve Barnes speak at a panel on SF writing last weekend. He talked a lot about his experiences as a black SF writer. He recently published a an alternate history called 'Lion's Blood' in which the position of the races are reversed (here's the website: http://www.lionsblood.com/). Someone in the audience brought up Farnham's Freehold - Barnes said merely 'Don't get me started.'
