I am a big fan of Hogan's careful scientific peeling apart the layers of a puzzle. Like other readers, I was disappointed by this potboiler. It is an undigested amalgam of heavy dollops of Hogan's particular libertarian politics projected into a post-post-apocalyptic future, and an average adventure story. The main character is a traveling illusionist, snatched from a feudal state into the crew of a multi-generational colonization mission to another planet. He gets involved in intelligence gathe ...more
While it's unclear that this is part of a series and the book works as a standalone the world of the ark ship Aurora, its satellite worlds and the superb society built there deserves more books

A return to the Hogan of the Giants saga combining didacticism with great world building and interesting characters, especially the stage magician Korshak and the robot Ket; the villains make a hilarious bunch with their subtle name "Dollarians" and the mystical symbol $, while their leaders go by titles l

I love this book even though it's not his best work, because I'm a character in it!
Mr. Hogan was a great author and a great friend too, and he made me very happy when he agreed to name a character after me. I first appear in chapter 6.
This was the last book he wrote before he died. He told me he planned to write at least one sequel, so the story will sadly never be completed, but I think it's worth a read.

One of Hogan's better reads in my opinion, this was typical of his style, not too dolorous but equally with enough cleverness to make it worthwhile. I didn't realise he'd published a third volume of shorter fiction as well; I must pick that up sometime if it's been done electronically.

I really like Hogan's stuff usually. This seems like one big tell. He doesn't take time to describe people, places and things. I found it very dry.
