GWave sources & N-stars in SF - any accurate stories?
After seeing Barkster move his Einstein sat-dish-at-home subthread to a new thread, I'll do the same and expand my question.
The original thread was epros' "Prospective GW sources"
on the causes of GWaves with a subthread on the nature of neutron starquakes and resultant GW-radiating assymetries in n-stars.
Mildly off-topic...but these are the only lengthly fictional treatments I know off about n-star makeup, crust and starquakes. Physicist Robert L. Forward, inventor of the Forward mass detector and other gravity related concepts, wrote two sf novels, Dragon's Egg (1980) & its sequel Starquake, about the surface environment on a neutron star.
If he were alive today, what would he have to change in his n-star descriptions, if anything, with the advantage of a quarter-century's increase in scientific knowledge about neutron stars?
And I'll add:
Has any other sf author created a good (meaning plausibly accurate) mention of gravity-wave sources?
