See, I am okay with boring hard SF, given that when I am not reading SF I have been know to, like, try to calculate asteroid orbits for fun, or read 19th century medical texts, but the story-boring parts have to actually contain interesting information to carry the rest of it, and the last Bova I read I had to slog through pages and pages of un-engaging characters and really really badly done social-science stuff to get to really tiny bits with the orbits.
