    The action starts almost immediately in this book and, while there are necessary lulls in the action, it doesn t ever go away for long I think this novel would make for a really good space opera fantasy movie They d need a really big special effects budget though, what with the novel largely taking place on an ice planet populated with various species of exotic alien.As usual, Foster s biggest strengths are his world building and his seemingly boundless enthusiasm for the outlandish scenarios The action starts almost immediately in this book and, while there are necessary lulls in the action, it doesn t ever go away for long I think this novel would make for a really good space opera fantasy movie They d need a really big special effects budget though, what with the novel largely taking place on an ice planet populated with various species of exotic alien.As usual, Foster s biggest strengths are his world building and his seemingly boundless enthusiasm for the outlandish scenarios he places his characters in This isn t hard s.f by and means but it s a Hell of a lot of fun if you like your space opera on the bloody side.My only complaint is that one of the protagonists is a rich young lady who is significantly overweight Initially, I was overjoyed at this, thinking how good it was that there was a prominent female character in a novel that wasn t described as if she d just jumped off the cover of Vogue for once Unfo...

    I have a soft spot for Alan Dean Foster I grew up reading his Spellsinger series, and I ve enjoyed many of his stand alone novels For sci fi written before 1980 this is pretty decent Action packed, humanoid aliens, misogynistic and self contained They don t write books like these any, and I ...

    I m a hardcore Foster apologist and pretty much love most of his work But really, guys, who couldn t love an frozen world with ice skating bat like people who are roundabout medieval in their social development

    I first read this book in the very early 80s, when I picked up a copy of the seventh printing April 1981 I remember that I liked it which I must have done, since I ve held on to this yellowed paperback for 35 years now but I had, frankly, forgotten almost all the details It was high time to reread it.Ethan Frome Fortune is a young traveling salesman, journeying aboard a luxury starliner to his next port of call, where he plans to sell a consignment of goods at a tidy profit Along the way, I first read this book in the very early 80s, when I picked up a copy of the seventh printing April 1981 I remember that I liked it which I must have done, since I ve held on to this yellowed paperback for 35 years now but I had, frankly, forgotten almost all the details It was high time to reread it.Ethan Frome Fortune is a young traveling salesman, journeying aboard a luxury starliner to his next port of call, where he plans to sell a consignment of goods at a tidy profit Along the way, the liner makes a quick stop at Tran ky ky, which used to be a pelagic world but has since frozen over, with vast seas of ice broken only by a few island chains and other minor land masses.During the stop, Ethan stumbles across a kidnapping in a remote part of the ship two thugs are trying to abduct a wealthy industrialist and his feisty daughter, forcing them into one of the liner s escape pods at gunpoint The crooks are reluctant to kill Ethan for fear of alerting the ship s crew, so they make him co...

    ADF is pretty middlebrow The Flinx books and Icerigger are probably his best silly space opera adventures, nothing substantial, they re exciting and have a sort of charm I ll always keep the Icerigger books because of Collette du Kane and her ass like a cake of sherbet.
