review from 1989

At first glance Nighteyes appears to be a cross-over novel: part mainstream best seller, part Steven King horror, part spy thriller, but mostly a sinister version of Close Encounters. Well it's all of that, but at heart it remains a better than average sf novel.

Garfield begins with the intriguing premise that if (a) UFO's were really in the habit of abducting human subjects from secluded locations, and if (b) spys spend a lot of their time conducting covert actions in said seclud

Garfield Reeves-Stevens is a writer that not enough people know of. He and his wife Judith have teamed up in the past many times on novels and TV shows like Star Trek Enterprise and the SyFy original movie Fire Serpent. Alone, Garfield has also written many novels, including plenty set in the Star Trek Expended Universe. Many of his works are genre-benders with a sci-fi touch.

When I came across Nighteyes in a used bookstore, it wasn't only the cover that led me to buying it. The inside flap comp

Recurring people play scapegoats for secret agencies. They became a clog in the wheel of the secret service during this new age set story. These common individuals flee amok catching up somehow in controversy leading to powerful governmental consequences. The technology in this near future view compared to ours would look like our own perceiving it by a general point of view. This story is interesting. Its political viewpoint becomes a part of the story adding interest in the normal collective ...more

If you examine the reviews on Amazon for this book; you will see a startling amount of derision and scorn. No idea why. Mystifying; because its a genuinely well-written, energetic treatment of a premise that has seen a lot of over-use in contemporary science fiction. Just because the idea at the base of this story is so plastic that every SF-based tv series relies on it at least once a season; is no reason to slight this novel. Furthermore, the author had to deal with the challenge of treading ...more

Let me just begin by saying that this book was much longer than it needed to be. In my opinion, there were many filler scenes adding no value to the story that the author could have omitted.

Let me also warn you that I personally am not a fan of stories involving UFOs and aliens. Admittedly, I picked up this book out of desperation to have something to read and lack of other options. I didn't particularly care for the concept; it's unoriginal and done many times before. Honestly, this alien story
Apr 27, 2015 Stacy rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
One specific detail about the story is that, unlike most books written a couple decades back or longer tending to date themselves with everyday objects that our society has outgrown, such as a VCR tape collection or makes of cars, etc.; things only a collector would have now, this doesn't. I liked that. The country's alphabet agencies are involved in messing each other over til it irritates the reader with the paranoia but it's all story line so we have to deal with it. The rest of the story ...more

Lady's daughter is stolen by aliens...again...and then they come back to get her, or something more sinister.

An OK SF about alien abductions. I don't know if the author changed midway between trying to be scary and trying to be hopeful. Again, it was OK.
