This was one of the first science fiction books I bought (the earlier ones I borrowed since I had no idea what I was getting myself in to). It was part of a selection of Edmund Cooper titles which I read voraciously. Now years later on one of my random sorties in to the depths of my collection I find it again and sit down once more to read it.
The story is a fascinating one for me simple because not only do I enjoy the story all over again but I remember my feeling as I read it for the first tim...more

I read this book a long time ago. It wasn't this edition, but I remember the cover featuring a much more exotic spaceship and background. I loved the alien world setting and the title.

I have read this book many times and never tire of the world that Edmund Cooper created here. A Far Sunset transports you to a place far from reality and yet from the first page you are a participant in a truly epic adventure.

One of my all-time sf favorites. An astronaut is treated like
a god by the simple inhabitants of another planet. When he
learns the reason, he is astounded.

Cooper's books are hard to find now. They should be reprinted.
