Overview

A small-time thief named Danny Briggs finds the unfinished epic poem of Black Orpheus, chronicling all the bigger-than-life characters that live and die on the galaxy’s Inner Frontier – and the biggest of them all was Santiago, the notorious King of the Outlaws.
Danny unearths the secret not only of Santiago’s identity, but also his purpose, and he sets out to finish the epic by finding and anointing a new Santiago. There are a lot of colorful candidates – The One-Armed Bandit, Silvermane, Tyrannosaur Bailey, others – and there are enemies galore. And Danny and his new partner, Waltzin'’Matilda, soon find that choosing a Santiago is a far cry from controlling him.
A perfect companion piece to Mike Resnick’s international bestseller, Santiago.

Editorial Reviews

Don D'Ammassa
Resnick's tale of larger than life people is a kind of fairy tale of the Old West set in outer space, and if you think that isn't a viable combination, then you haven't read Mike Resnick. Gunfights, glory, and great storytelling in one of his best recent novels.
John Teehan
The Return of Santiago can be read on its own or in conjunction with the first novel. In either case, Mike Resnick succeeds in telling a ripping good yarn while bringing legends to life, and hope to the Inner Frontier.
Regina Schroeder
Santiago is the greatest outlaw of the Inner Frontier (see Resnick's Santiago: A Myth of the Far Future, 1992), and Danny Briggs is no Santiago. He isn't much of a thief, either, but he is smart, capable of turning even disaster into amazing good fortune after he stumbles across the lost manuscript of Black Orpheus. Convinced that there is a secret to be found in the pages, he doesn't stay Danny Briggs for long. He becomes Dante, chronicler of a new generation on the Inner Frontier, in search of

    Impossible to Read Due to Formatting Problem

    Mike Resnick is an author really enjoy and I've never read one of his books that I didn't think was terrific. Unfortunately, this one has formatting issues on my tablet so that it is completely unreadable. I had the same problem with another of his books - I could read it on my laptop, but on my tablet it would not format correctly so there was no gutter and thus half of every sentence was obscured.

    When/if this issue is corrected I'll revisit this review and modify it accordingly. Until then, I can't say anything meaningful except don't buy it if you expect to read it on a smaller tablet.

    Great story, but filled with typos

    This was a great story that told the "flip-side" of the previous book.

    My problem with the text is that it was filled with typos, which took me out of the story each time. Given that it usually happens at least once on each page, I ended up re-reading sections more than once to figure out what was meant.
