Despite heavy damage from alien Laagi warships, incredibly the ship is till intact and the voice of its pilot, Raoul Penard, comes through loud and clear. But Petard died over one hundred years ago On Earth, frantic investigation reveals that Petard may be dead but his mind is very much alive merged with the ship itself.

She did not like green peppers, steak (much), most abstract art, music playing while she worked-or any distraction, however slight, from the task at hand-and any failure to get things correct e also, Jim thought, was in love.

She did not like green peppers, steak (much), most abstract art, music playing while she worked-or any distraction, however slight, from the task at hand-and any failure to get things correct e also, Jim thought, was in love with Raoul but recognized the emotion as a hopeless one. If she was in love, it was with the image of a man she had largely fashioned for herself from the sound of his voice and the choice of the poetry he quoted

Gordon R. Dickson (1923 - 2001) Gordon Rupert Dickson was born in Alberta, Canada, in 1923 but resided in the United States from the age of thirteen.

Gordon R. Along with Robert A. Heinlein, he is regarded as one of the fathers of military space opera, his Dorsai! sequence being an early exemplar of both military SF and Future History. Dickson was one of the rare breed of authors as well known for his fantasy as his SF - The Dragon and the George, the first novel in his Dragon Knight sequence, was shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award and won the British Fantasy Award

It's obvious that Cletus Graeme-limping, mild-mannered scholarly-doesn't belong on a battling field, but instead at a desk working on his fourth book on battle strategy and tactics. But Bakhalla has more battlefields than libraries, and Graeme sees his small force of Dorsai-soldiers of fortune-as the perfect opportunity to test his theories. But if his theories or his belief in the Dorsai lead him astray, he's a dead man.

I liked the basic premise of the book but felt it did not deliver. Sentence structure was often clumsy; like bouncing along a rutted dirt road in an old jeep, it got you there but you arrived worn out. Ending was hokey and poorly set up , as if the surprise was more important than getting you to the surprise. (Ok, there really was no surprise.)
I did enjoy the use of quantum theory and the mind journeys outside of the human body.
If this work had been a little more carefully developed and written, it could have been a best seller.

A general theme of mankind searching for viable planets to expand to while in a stalemate with aliens blocking the way. Two very different travelers find the perceptions of different aliens can be bridged for mutual benefit even for humans if you sell the idea as a giant win for Earth.
While the main characters seem stereotypical, the depth of causal probing into the nature of the psyche for building cultural bridges has my vote for win-win scenario. Something we could all apply to living on a world full of conflict.
Great young adult book and those young in mind

I liked this book. Don't go into this thinking it's going to be another space opera. While there is a small battle at the beginning this is in no way a book with a hero, a villain, and a journey. Rather this is a somewhat philosophical treatment of what it it to be human, our strengths, our limitations, and how those concepts will work toward or interfere with our ability to communicate with other life in the universe. This book is about how we communicate and the concepts we use to communicate. While the book could go further in my opinion than it does, it ends in a rather trite fashion, this book is still one of the better books out there on the challenges we face in dealing with other entities.

The main story of mind over matter or out of body existence is well developed, but the relationship between Jim and Mary is forced. The ending made no sense, nor did the acrimony that set up that ending. Still, this is a good read for the larger story of three alien races learning to communicate.
Saintrius
This is a fabulous scifi concept, best story I`'ve read in years. The writing style reminds me of another famous scifi writer, excellent stories, but one requires the longsuffering of Christ to plow through the excess wordage getting to the gist . Every word that doesn`t advance the story takes something away from it, just not my style. But still worth reading.
Moswyn
This is a very ‘heady’ type story...meaning, it goes on mostly inside the main characters mind and that he communicates and travels through using his mind. Also full of psychological concepts. The writing describes so much in detail that it can drag a bit in parts, but the concept is good - especially the two alien societies they encounter!

Overall, it was a good story, but less interesting to my taste than other works of Dickson's. I guess that I'm more comfortable in the Dorsai universe than this one. I found it tedious in places.
this is a great read that will have you unable to put it down. about the time you think you have the story line figured out it goes down a different road.
