There is no wikipedia.org page for Star Web or Joan Cox. This might be the first time I couldn't find someone other than myself on wikipedia.
In Star Web there are space-port opium dens, interspecies threesomes that might involve siblings, a telepathic tree that also has a sex scene, and absolutely no semblance of a discernable plot. Somehow you have all of those things, lots of space travel, some galactic politics and a laser battle or two, and still you end up with a very shitty book in your hands.
There is a lot of that going on in Star Web, whatever it is. I tried re-reading a passage of this book while, um, high, but that didn't help either.
