It is an old-fashioned space opera but unfortunately there's nothing very original in the novel's components. The characters all have too many personal problems and too much supporting material is unexplained.

A compelling storyline with well written and believable characters. The cover of the book states, "The first novel in an exciting new future history. I wish it were so. I wish this guy had written more books.

The Shattered Stars is an old fashioned space opera. There's nothing very original in the novel's components, but McEnroe assembles them effectively, creating a fun story that pits good guy underdogs against a bad guy telepath who seeks to increase his already immense power.

Moses Callahan, an independent freight hauler, is stuck on Hybreasil with a lien against his ship (the Wild Goose) for unpaid docking and service charges when Axyll Jakubowski offers him a contract to deliver cargo to Avalon. Callahan accepts the offer and hires the last available pilot on Hybreasil, Deacon Hallorhan, a former member of the Marine Infantry who was an "enhanced" soldier, a killing machine who fought a successful but bloody battle at Mishima before being conditioned against violence and discharged. Jakubowski's cargo turns out to be a weapon that creates a nuclear reaction from any element. Just before the Wild Goose is scheduled to depart, Jakubowski is killed and two passengers come aboard, one of whom is acting as a node for James Emerson White, a rogue telepath. The ship's engineer and third crew member, Mitsuko "Spooky" Tamura, is a also telepath, a fact she tries to keep hidden. Her former instructor, Eisberg, enlists her unwilling assistance in dealing with White, who is a threat to the telepathic community. Conflicts emerge in due course as the Wild Goose makes its way to Avalon.

As a good guys vs. bad guys story, The Shattered Stars is a bit formulaic; there's not much doubt about the goodness of the good guys or the badness of the bad guys, nor is there much doubt about who will prevail -- although to be fair, there's at least one significant surprise in the ending. Nonetheless, for what it is, the novel is well done: actions scenes crackle with vivid descriptions of battle; the crew members of the Wild Goose are easy to cheer for; and the story, despite being formulaic, is satisfying. Fans of classic space opera could do worse than to pick up a copy of The Shattered Stars.

Easy read, well written, but too much supporting material unexplained. The header really explains it all. Thanks, Harry!

There are more books in this sci-fi series by Richard S. McEnroe, but they are even harder to find. At the end of "The Shattered Stars" is a coming soon ad for "Wolkenheim Fairday" which was supposed to be the next Far Stars and Future Times novel. It did get printed but I'm not sure where it fits in the series. The actual book 2 is titled "Flight of Honor", and there is a 3rd book, "Skinner." All are rare and if I ever locate one, I'll scoop it up.

Very solid SF story telling. A compelling storyline with well written and believable characters. The cover of the book states, "The first novel in an exciting new future history." I wish it were so. I wish this guy had written more books. If you like good SF books, you can't go wrong here.
