(Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography []. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted here illegally.)

As I've mentioned here before, most fans of science-fiction consider the genre to have now gone through four major periods (or "ages" as the nerds call it) of history: there is the "Golden Age" from when the genre first came into being in the early 1900s; the "Silver Age" of Mid-Century Modernism, wh

It's weird. Well written, starts well, then slowly goes downhill from there. I think the title refers to, this case, me as the reader. ...more

Una de las peores novelas que he leído en muchos, pero muchos años. Ni siquiera sé por qué la venden como novela de ciencia ficción.

The action of the book is set a couple hundred years in the future, in a post-apocalyptic world created by "the Great Scream", which was some sort of telepathic explosion. The protagonist, Ray Mantle, is searching for his wife, Josiane, who was lost in the Great Scream. The setting is both realistic and fantastic, and includes a repeat "last voyage" of the restored Titanic, on which some of the passengers have signed up to die in its preordained collision with an iceberg. In fact, life seems qui ...more
A very odd book, not least of which is contained in the cover, which depicts a balding middle aged dude apparently floating upon the upper forehead of a sleeping woman's head, which also happens to be carved from rock. Not certain if it fits my conception of the prose, but it's a good match in spirit. Because the story is that weird, too. With a great, goofy title, too. ...more
El Yunque de Hefesto.
Una novela lenta, ardua en su inicio, pero que realmente llega a transmitirte una atmósfera de histeria y miedo al siguiente aullido. No creo que sea apta para cualquier lector o para cualquier momento dada su lentitud inicial, sin embargo me pareció bastante original y consigue que encaje incluso algo tan fuera de lugar en esta historia como el Titanic.

I had a hard time reading this book; it just didn't grab me. I felt the narrative was too neurotic--as if the author was the one losing his mind,as well as the main character. It was really disappointing because the concept was very interesting.
About half way through, I found myself not caring about the outcome of the story.

I enjoyed this book. I've never heard of Jack Dann befor, but I'll be reading more of him after this interesting book. Lush, believable characters with depth, and an interesting grounded vision of the future. ...more

Looking forward to this one...
Too odd for me. Not able to grasp the outlying concept and the characterization just doesnt get me either.
