Roland GreenThe latest Wolverton novel shares its universe with his popular "Serpent Catch". In it, the planet Anee was populated a thousand years ago by a variety of genetically re-created extinct species, including Neanderthal man. Relations between "H. sapiens" and the Neanderthals have been a mixed bag, to say the least, but now a mixed-breed hero is the key to the planet's survival. Whether or not Wolverton set out to use sf elements to tell what is also a fine heroic fantasy, he has certainly managed to create a solid page-turner of the sort that may not achieve classic status but will not disappoint fans of action sf. For most collections.
