Outies Moties #3

And ecology at the heart of alien Motie society and evolution While military science fiction in a sense that sense is very much of the wars of our time Outies plunges through the confusion chaos factionalism and unpredictability of low intensity conflict with realism but largely through civilian eyes In a twist on traditional space opera it introduces Asach uinn a wily thoughtful genderless and diplomatic foil to reckless pilot Kevin Renner Leaving the aristocratic manors of Sparta uinn burrows deep inside the heads of members of the Church of Him who believe that the red dwarf visible twinkling through the Coal Sack Nebula is literally the Eye of God Pournelle an ex Army intelligence officer turned anthropologist provides New Utah and its characters with a rich sense of place and deep motivations; hints at what may become over the next millenium I really really liked this I would have maybe rated it like 4 stars but I just thought some of those other reviews were really way off I can see where readers who just want to flip pages would not like it and I would not recommend it to them It s a demanding book than that It gives you an incredible sense of place and really makes you think about how things might really evolve over time if a world was pretty much but not totally cut off It s way complex than I traveled to interesting new places met fascinating people and killed themThe book starts out with four levels andor timelines Imperial all of Second Empire Space System the trans Coalsack sector Capitol St George the capitol of New Utah and local Bonneville the Outback New Utah At first these seem like they are all separate and have nothing to do with each other But in every chapter they come closer closer until finally it turns out that they all come togetherIt s true that if you want all fast paced action the first half is slow But it did really pull you in I really felt like New Utah was a real place not just some backdrop for the next video game The author really thought through a lot there s even appendixes that lay out things like how the religion works and why the aliens evolved the way they did even music And the female characters are real and important and not just heavily armed girl jocks though some are that tooSo I absolutely don t agree with this book being dismissed as a mess It just isn t a fanboy book There s nothing wrong with fanboy books or fanboys But this book is for readers who like depth

Of Mormons moties and Earth islanders displaced by sea level rise and even masters some Tok Pisin along the wayAt nearly 110000 words about 400 print pages the book is packed with additional material designed to allow the reader to explore New Utah in as much depth as desired For those new to or needing a refresher on the Mote series a detailed chronology lists key events over the five centuries preceding Outies The cast of characters is organized by role and location providing hints of relationships that unwind over the course of the novel A map lays out the continental scale environs in which the story is set An appendix provides a guide to acronyms details of religious history and organization an explanation of alien accounting systems and evolutionary biology There is even an original musical score composed by music theorist J Daniel Jenkins This series declines in uality from book to book but the first one was of such very high uality that the floor is four or five levels up Not uite satisfying as the end of the series but it probably should be unless some real inspiration comes along Well worth the read but a little bit laundry list a little formulaicThe characters are still well drawn but it s hard for me to get involved with royal families and all of that the importance of the people lessens the import of the events of the narrativeI d recommend it but with some reservations Not really for anyone who wasn t captivated by the Moties in the first place

    No This book is not about belly buttonsIn 1974 Jerry Pournelle published a book titled The Mote in God's Eye with an assist from Larry Niven Then in 1993 the two combined on a seuel titled The Gripping Hand These were both hard science fiction novels about first contact with a species from the 'Mote' They were referred to
