Editorial Reviews

Fantasy Revieww #91 - D. Douglas Fratz
SANTIAGO is first class space opera, maybe the best ever written.
Science Fiction Review #60 - Dean R. Lambe
By the time the hunters converge on the real Santiago, the reader has been led far beyond simple myth to the heart of human comedy. Space opera, yes, but also a work that stands with Asimov's FOUNDATION TRILOGY, Resnick's best yet is one to keep and re-read.

This is the first book that I have read, front to cover in one day. Probably the last too. I was deployed to Saudi Arabia 3 rotations after the Gulf War and found this book in a pile of free 'morale' books. I couldn't put it down! That was 10 years ago. I left the book by mistake and have finally found it!! Awesome read!!

This is a masterpiece of storytelling and mythmaking. His many characters are well developed through side bars of their history and traditions of the Outer Frontier without interrupting the flow of his story. I have read and reread this tale many times, and never tire of it.

Mike Resnick has done a wonderful job in this book. He has put forth the idea that it may be possible to unite a diverse group of nations if they had a common enemy. Not very original of an idea, but I don't think anyone has taken it so seriously. Also, no one has ever looked at it from the perspective of the enemy which I find extremely thought provoking. I honestly believe this should be a must read for philosophy students. It is an excellent piece of work.
