    From The Ashes Smolders But Lacks Flame

    As it is with many franchises that license novels - be they movies, televsion shows or video game media cross overs - there comes a time that the creative integrity that once popularized an otherwise intriguing genre crosses a line that cheapens the previous or original work with poor quality popularized fluff pieces. Thus is the case with this bit of drivel that, at various times, is as banal as it is chauvenistic. The end result amounts to an engrandized version of fan fiction that is a very poor cross between Rambo and The Road Warrior. The novelizations of the first two Terminators movies by wordsmith Randall Frakes captured the feel of the films, conveying the intensity of the celluloid version with grace and ease. The prequel novel presented here does none of that, instead being trite and unconvincing as a prelude to the upcoming film. It can only be hoped that the novelization of the film itself, authored by Alan Dean Foster, lives up a the usual high standards Mr. Foster is known for. When all is said and done, Timothy Zahn's attempt at the Terminator franchise has hit a dead end. (liquidgee@comcast.net)
