Overview

To the Resurrection Station, Arnason’s second novel (written in the 1970s), was first published in 1986. On a planet far from our Earth, it begins a Gothic tale: a moldering mansion full of secrets, a creaking retainer, a disturbing master of the house, a young and innocent heroine, and the mansion’s robot servant, who drives the story. A motley crew escapes to Earth (now overrun by interesting intelligent machines, except for a clearly crazy space port) where they land and begin exploring the ruins of New York City. In a new Afterword written for this edition, Arnason describes Resurrection Station as about people who can’t fit into social roles. “Claud can’t be a traditional Native. Belinda can’t be a straight young woman or a traditional heroine. Shortpaw is not an acceptable giant mutant rat. Without being especially heroic, they all refuse to give in or give up.”
