Overview

Welcome to the Well World: a construct of an ancient defunct race known as the Markovians. The Well World acts both as the controller of and the gateway to 1560 worlds created by the Markovians at the end of their time.

Gilgam Zinder finally discovers the secret to the Markovian Well World but is then forced by the evil politician and drug dealer, Antor Trelig, to develop a computer that can control the artificial construct.

Mavra Chang is a freighter pilot hired to rescue Zinder�s daughter, who has been kidnapped by Trelig, and to save the worlds populating the construct from Trelig�s malicious plans. In the process, Obie, the self�aware computer, accidentally causes a whole world to be automatically transported around the Well World, causing Mavra�s ship to crash on a �non-tech� hex-world.

As inhabitants of surrounding hex-worlds start to realize what is going on, they scramble to collect the pieces of the scattered ship in the hope of escaping the planet, resulting in a chaotic war between various races that might lead to the destruction of the Well World itself.

Exiles at the Well of Souls is the second book set in the Well World universe.

I read this series many years ago (over 30?) and it has always been a favorite of mine. It went out of print for many years or I would have read it again earlier. It was just as good the second time around. I am not a big fantasy reader but appreciate more science fiction type work. This series has a bit of both and is exceptionally well written. Be sure to get the whole set before it goes out of print again. It is an EXCELLENT READ!!!

I HAVE BEEN READING JACK CHALKER FOR MANY YEARS AND FIND HIM TO BE AMOUNGST THE VERY BEST IN INOVATIVE SF. THE WELL WORLD SERIES IS ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE EVER. TO TRAVEL IN THE WELL WORLD IS AMAZING. IT IS SO HARD TO DESCRIBE IN A FEW SHORT WORDS. IF YOU LIKED THE 'MATRIX' THEN YOU WILL LOVE CHALKER'S MANY SERIES, AS HE WAS BEHIND THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT-READ THE WONDERLAND GAMBIT SERIES AND YOU WILL SEE.
