Overview

Imprisoned for a crime of passion, Wyatt Dorren is given a second chance at life on the Criminal Rehabilitation Program. Placed at Chicago's Interplanetary Zoological Park (IZP) his role is to capture alien life forms for return and exhibition at the zoo. The risks are great but anything is better than a life on the inside.

Wyatt does well at the zoo and its director, Douglas Mannheim, recognizes the very real threat that Wyatt's growing respect and popularity pose to him.

Mannheim plans a bogus mission in an attempt to rid himself of Wyatt but by accident, a young student, Kate Frere, finds herself assigned to Wyatt's crew. It will be her naïveté that will ultimately uncover the awful truth of what has been done to them all.

Now, Wyatt must unite his team. A team that comprises two old friends, a new recruit, a failure, a rogue element, and now Kate. Together they must work to overcome their differences and come together to find a way back to Earth.

There is one small problem though: they are no longer the hunters...

But the hunted.

    Collecting from the Universe for Zoo

    This adventure in space builds a vivid picture of future time and distant worlds, populated by the exotic creatures of bounteous creations every bit as diverse as the Earth's. We have a diverse team of specimen collectors sent, not so much to gather, as to die. This is a great adventure undertaken by a group of strongly cast individuals, who must choose between desperate cooperation and death. Not a hard choice, one may think! An adventure that can grab the imagination of those of all ages,in short, the sort of engaging book that now so rarely makes it through the vile and shocking to the front of our few remaining book-stores. This is the sort of SF that readers across most mainstream genres can enjoy.

    Great old-school sci-fi adventure!

    Stuart Clark is a rising star in science fiction, judging by the reaction to his splendid first novel, 'Project U.L.F.' A swift-moving adventure, it cleverly transfers 'The Lost World' to, literally, a lost world an unnamed planet 2.7 light years beyond Centauri Red 603. The easy prose and unwavering pace invite you to sit down, strap in, and enjoy the ride. The shameful past that Wyatt Dorren hides only fuels his drive as head of Project U.L.F., a division of the Interplanetary Zoo tasked with collecting unseen creatures from across the galaxy. He's become good at his job. Too good. And that means someone wants him out of the way. Wyatt and his team of misfits find themselves stranded on an uncharted and very dangerous planet, fending off Clark's imaginative repertoire of critters and beasties as they look for a way home. It comes as no complaint that 'Project U.L.F.''s plot is relatively straightforward that is the novel's strength. There are a number of twists, turns and betrayals, to be sure, but the joy is in riding along with Wyatt as he works overtime getting out of jams while travelling from Point A to Point Beta Epsilon. A movie thrillride if ever there was one, 'Project U.L.F.' packs in the set pieces while never feeling manufactured for show. The ensemble crew have their own trials along the way, and all 'well, most all' come across as endearing despite their flaws. I particularly liked Chris, the naive medic who is much more than he seems, and Gon-Thok, the... what the heck is Gon-Thok, anyway? If anything, I thought Furball was underutilized -- while more was hinted at with his empathy, it didn't seem to come to fruition. If you're yearning for a good, solid adventure of the kind 'they don't seem to make anymore', you're in for a treat with 'Project U.L.F.'. Me? I'm just waiting for the next installment -- same Clark time, same Clark channel.
