Roger E. AllenIsaac Asimov's Utopia (Caliban Series , Vol 3)Caliban SeriesA comet, redirected to strike the ecologically bereft planet Inferno, could create new rivers or totally destroy the planet. The human colonists want to take the risk, but will the robots acquiesce? A satisfying conclusion to the trilogy (Inferno, Ace: Berkeley, 1994, and Caliban, LJ 2/15/93, coauthored with Asimov), which redefines Asimov's laws of robotics.

Roger MacBride AllenThe Ocean of Years (The Chronicles of Solace, Book 2)The Chronicles of SolaceAs the second, but surely not the last, Chronicle of Solace opens, the planet Solace's terraforming is beginning to break down. Oskar De Silvo, who began it, is supposed to be dead but actually is in a combination of stasis and cryogenic suspension to prolong his existence so that he can be at hand to prevent disaster. Meanwhile, Anton Koffield, formerly of the Chronologic Patrol, is using all his knowledge of timeshaft travel and a hijacked and disguised starship to deal with a personal enemy. So dealing, he discovers that De Silvo's knowledge may hold the key to saving Earth from a disaster that occurred many centuries ago. He travels through a timeshaft wormhole back to Earth of the early third millennium. At the end of more than 400 pages, Koffield has just gotten into position to save Earth. The action, characters, and technology are sufficiently absorbing to make this book thoroughly readable. Again Allen has mixed hard science, social science, and pure adventure effectively.

Jack AndersonMillenniumSyndicated political columnist and novelist Anderson (The Japan Conspiracy) obviously wanted to craft a major statement about the U.S. government's alleged UFO cover-up, but this flaccid potboiler reads more like an egocentric fantasy than a tough-minded expose. Hard-nosed Washington, D.C., syndicated columnist Mick Aaronson meets an extraterrestrial, Klaatu (yes, the same name as the alien in the 1952 film, The Day the Earth Stood Still, to which this story bears more than a few resemblances), who in 1999 has come to Earth in human form to warn the President that our planet will be subjected to mass sterilization unless humanity overcomes its arrogance and complacency. Turned away from the White House, Klaatu delivers his message instead to Aaronson, who writes columns spreading the word. Meanwhile, Ghost, an inner-city drug dealer, has stolen Klaatu's magic rock, which confers powers of mind control, enabling this gang leader to seduce, rob and murder with impunity. The cast also includes an apocalyptic New Age preacher, who seeks Dead Sea scrolls that foretell a Judgment Day linked to the alien's visit; a decadent heiress and UFO abductee, who falls in love with Klaatu; and a headstrong woman reporter, who gets in too deep. Though its take on the supposed alien/human breeding program popularized by writers like John Mack and Budd Hopkins is certainly timely, Anderson's wisecracking novel falls short of success as both science fiction and thriller.

Kevin J. Anderson, Doug BeasonIll WindA promising disaster scenario fizzles as Anderson and Beason (coauthors of Assemblers of Infinity and The Trinity Paradox) succumb to lightweight plotting, facile characterization and an apparent need to allude to as many pop-cultural artifacts as possible. When a panicky oil company tries to clean up a major spill in San Francisco Bay by dropping genetically engineered oil-eating microbes on it, the little organisms go berserk and start devouring most of the world's long-chain polycarbons (gasoline, plastics, etc.). Within the first 150 pages, this leads to a breakdown of communications and information-processing systems. From there until the end of the novel, however, affairs are basically limited to several displays of plucky ingenuity (during which one character compares the work of his group, unfavorably, to that of the Professor on Gilligan's Island). Meanwhile, an acting president and a general, independently, attempt to enforce martial law on an unwilling populace. The heroes are heroic, especially scientist Spencer Lockwood and pilots Billy Carron and Todd Severyn (the latter atoning for having unwittingly dropped the petrol-eating organism in the first place). Todd's girlfriend, Iris Shikozu, stages a post-apocalyptic rock concert at the Altamont Speedway. Almost all the chapter headings are titles of old pop songs, books or movies (Good Vibrations, The Stand, Urban Cowboy). It's possible that those who care, as Iris does, about Kansas's live comeback album will find this fascinating, but most readers are likely to feel that The End of the World As We Know It deserves better handling.

Poul AndersonFire Time The planet Ishtar has three suns: Bel, the "real" sun, the Life Giver. Ea, the Companion who warms the Ishtaran summers. Anu, the Demon Star. Mostly Anu is so far away that it is just a light in the Ishtaran sky. But once every thousand years it comes close. It is then that the barbarians must flee their scorched lands, and civilizations fall. The natives call this Fire Time. Always before, its coming had meant the death of a civilization. But this time, the humans are here, and they have brought with them their magical technology. This time things could have been different. Too bad that the humans are suddenly faced with a war of their own, their own Fire Time.Hardcover

Since to all appearances the folk of Gwydion were the most thoroughly amiable in all the galaxy - words for such concepts as war, theft, anger, murder and jealousy did not even exist in their language - there could hardly be a problem. But as the season changed on Gwydion, so did the people..." Includes an afterword by Sandra Miesel.Paperback
