One of Keith Laumer's longer works, this book is rather disjointed and episodic, but still manages to create an interesting scenario of the development of the earth colony on a distant planet.

The store has not been updated recently. The Book of Skaith: The Ginger Star 1 by Brackett, Leigh.

Keith Laumer, well-known for his tales of adventure and action, shows us a different side of his talent in this original, exciting and thought-provoking exploration of the meaning of meaning. Once again it is up to Jamie Retief to save another diplomatic mission. Terra has recently signed a treaty with the planet Petreac.

A disjointed pseudo-docudrama detailing the ""history"" of star colony Omega, with only a few flashes of the old Laumer wit and energy. Colony ship Omega crashlands on an inhospitable planet inhabited by grublike telepathic aliens; when the ship inexplicably disappears, the colonists-already at odds among themselves-are thrown back on their own resources.

One of Keith Laumer's longer works, this book is rather disjointed and episodic, but still manages to create an interesting scenario of the development of the earth colony on a distant planet. The shorter episodes are the best, and the story was left open to further installments. All in all, a good read, but not a classic.

Honestly, one of the worst books ever written. Extrmeley thin plot, weak characters, and some vaguely racist dialog makes for one extremely long book. You won't be able to wait to put it down.
