The Star Sailors

( 1 )

Overview

Throughout the history of the human race there have been adventurers who must test the limits of exploration, iconoclasts who will never be satisfied with peace at the expense of ignorance. And ignorance will be dangerous indeed if it is true that the Apollyoni exist. In a Galactic Federation without war, it has been hard to imagine evil, until the expedition to Ahriman ended in such horrible violence that its lone survivor--Coni Sanderson--had to be almost completely reconstructed. For Coni's sake, Greg Sheldon ...

Overview

Throughout the history of the human race there have been adventurers who must test the limits of exploration, iconoclasts who will never be satisfied with peace at the expense of ignorance. And ignorance will be dangerous indeed if it is true that the Apollyoni exist. In a Galactic Federation without war, it has been hard to imagine evil, until the expedition to Ahriman ended in such horrible violence that its lone survivor--Coni Sanderson--had to be almost completely reconstructed. For Coni's sake, Greg Sheldon wants more than anything to go beyond the perimeter to search out the truth. Richard Highstreet's father was lost on one of the last major expeditions and he, too, would travel anywhere to find out why. Outstanding courage has made Ben Wilson their commander on a desperate and illegal mission through metaspace, and he knows that if Art Cooke, the fourth crewmember of the Odyssey, knew the real reason for the voyage, he would have stopped it. It will be Ben's job to keep them from destroying each other before they reach their destination, because when that destination is reached, they may have more destruction on their hands than any of them could ever have imagined possible.

    The Library Journal called The Star Sailors "exceptional&qu

    The Library Journal called The Star Sailors "exceptional" in its review:  "This exceptional first novel should be considered by libraries that buy only a few sf titles each year, as well as by more extensive sf collections.  Bennett's book, like Ursula K. Le Guin's best work, excels on every level.  Characterization is remarkable and essential to the development of a complex and intriguing plot that makes the vanquishing of galactic and intergalactic evil a personal challenge for four representatives of the Galactic Federation.  A courageous captain defies the bounds set on space exploration and takes his three-person crew to a devastated planet, where one man discovers the fate of his father, another faces a crisis of faith, and another must pit his strength against those who once brutally harmed his wife.  Powerful, absorbing reading; highly recommended."  -- Rosemary Herbert, Harvard College Library in the Library Journal, June 15, 1980.
