Daniel F. Galouye was an extremely creative and gifted writer of sci-fi who unfortunately died young, before he was able to really "make his mark" as a writer. Still, everything he has written is excellent. His novel, *Simulacron-3* (also called *Counterfeit World*) was the basis for the movie *The Thirteenth Floor*, and it foresaw the *Matrix* concept a good 20+ years before its time. And that was not even one of his better novels. Still, I'd be hard-pressed to give him anything less than 5-sta ...more

Shelves: ci-fi
Al igual que en el otro libro leído de Galouye, el superior (y magnífico, en general) "Simulacron 3", este "Lords of Psychon" tiene un concepto extraordinario pero adolece de una narración algo simple y en ocasiones hasta confusa. Si bien es un libro de tres estrellas, le doy dos debido a la HORROROSA edición de Ferma (Colección Infinitum), cuya traducción ha hecho que se me alargue una semana un libro de "dos tardes" debido al cansancio que me provocaba tener que reconstruir en mi cabeza frases ...more

A breezy 60's era sci-fi novella featuring a rag tag band of Americans (of course) fighting off the decades old invasion of alien invaders, which happen to be sentient floating technicolor spheres. While I liked better the concept of Galouye's first novel (Dark Universe, featuring a society of humans who have never seen light, and worship it as a supreme being) I felt the text showed a stronger grasp of the craft of writing. There was less repetition of phrases and the dialogue was less clunky. ...more

I read this when I was very young, it was my dad's. Very good representation of 60's sci fi, I remember it after all these years so it must have made a huge impression. I reccommend it heartily.

This is really quite a unique story. Some of the concepts were completely new to me.
