George Duncan's novel was a one-evening read. To be honest, most Christian-based action novels annoy rather than inspire me. The pages in "At Play" kept turning because I had to see the next move in this ping- pong paced action-packed thriller that permits readers to vicariously experience the tension between good and evil that has warred on earth and in the heavenlies since Adam and Eve were evicted from the Garden.

George Duncan Beechey (1798 – 6 December 1852) was an English portrait painter. Beechey was the fourth child of two painters, Sir William Beechey and his second wife, Anne Jessop. He was a godson of George III. He was the brother of Captain Frederick William Beechey, admiral and painter Richard Brydges Beechey, and the portraitist Henry William Beechey. His father’s position as royal portraitist allowed Beechey to secure portrait commissions from royal circles.

This book, is a collection of short stories by the author, it's exciting, suspenseful, witty and occasionally profound. Most of the stories are about the Spacehawks, a military space unit of the future. Think Navy Seals in the 23rd century. Each story ends with something to consider and with a desire to keep reading.
My favorite story was "When the Sacred Ginmill Closes" where each Spacehawk is confronted with a piece of their own history to wrestle with. I could not put the book down and was left wanting more.
The Spacehawks are not only skilled in the military arts, they are often quite witty, so there are a number of funny lines. However, "An Epitaph for Shangri-La" brought tears to my eyes because the ending was so strongly poignant. The stories are vastly entertaining but the author also has a few theological points to make, he does so with ease and without preaching.
The rookie Spacehawk is Tequesta Lynquest. She is young but as the stories continue, she gains experience and becomes an exceptional character.
One alien in "When the Sacred Ginmill Closes", tells the Commander of the Spacehawks, "Reality is a tricky thing, sir, especially when dealing with time and space." Perhaps that's true. But although the Spacehawks are in a future time and in faraway space, they become very real and very interesting.
I highly recommend this read, and am looking forward to reading "Hoofbeats of a Devil", sounds riveting!

George L. Duncan's "Galaxy Gems" truly is a gem of a book! Having been an admirer of Mr. Duncan's newspaper work for some time now, and then instantly gotten addicted to the lean, clean, witty style of his fiction upon reading "A Dark Orange Farewell," I just knew I was in for a thrill ride with "Galaxy Gems," and I was not disappointed. Each of the six stories is set somewhere up there in the great beyond in the 23rd century. I was happy to see that Earthlings are still very human, and delighted to find (not that I'd doubted) that time and space had done nothing to diminish Mr. Duncan's strong Christian faith, and that it had sailed right out into galaxy on the wings of this book, which I highly recommend.
