Book Description

1 Aug 2013 Weird Space
Telepath Den Harper did the dirty work for the authoritarian Expansion, reading the minds of criminals, spies and undesirables, for years. Unable to take the strain, he stole a starship and headed into the unknown, a sector of lawless space known as Satan's Reach. For five years, he worked as a trader among the stars then discovered that the Expansion had set a bounty hunter on his trail. But what does the Expansion want with a lowly telepath like Harper? Is there something in the rumours that human space is being invaded by aliens from another realm? Harper finds out the answer to both these questions when he rescues an orphan girl from certain death and comes face to face with the terrible aliens known as the Weird. Satan s Reach is the second volume in the Weird Space series, a fast-paced action-adventure that pits humanity against the unimaginable terror from Beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable space adventure 20 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback
I'm so tired of gloomy, gritty SF with nebulous writing and characters you can't possibly like.I love Eric Brown style, his fast-paced action and his interesting characters you can relate to. I liked his world building and the criso dialogue! the story so far is interesting, i long to see the next chapter!

Weird Space is the shared universe Eric Brown created for Abaddon Books so they could add a Space Opera setting to their impressive collection of on-going series. While The Devil's Nebula set the scene, introduced the Weird, and gave little tidbits of background information, Satan's Reach takes many of these aspects and runs with them. Admittedly I was expecting something very different to what I read within the pages of Satan's Reach, but I eventually understood my reaction and how I had subconsciously skewed my expectations.

Den Harper is a runaway telepath now trading outside of the human controlled Expansion in Satan's Reach. It is here that he makes his living, taking jobs throughout that region of space and making ends meet. With only the ship - along with its AI Judi - he stole when he fled the Expansion, Harper lives a lonely life with much in his past that he has tried to leave behind. But when a trade goes wrong on the planet of Ajanta he ends up escaping with his life, and with a new companion, Zeela, that he rescues from the clutches of the planets inhabitants. As he tries to decide what to do with her, he discovers that the Expansion are once again on his trial and determined to track him down. With both the bounty hunters and the Ajantans after him he must decide where to go, and just how he can escape their seemingly obsessive need to catch him.

I mentioned earlier that Satan's Reach was not the book I expected. Truth be told, I expected more of a sequel to The Devil's Nebula, but that is not the case. The events depicted in The Devil's Nebula with the discovery of the Weird play a large role in the bigger picture, but not quite in the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Written for children? 27 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback
Having read a previous Eric Brown book ( Engineman), I expected a lot more from him than this. I note that Engineman was one of his earliest books, and judging from this he has run out of creative steam. This book, second in the "Weird Space" series, borrows heavily, in my opinion from Star Wars and Peter Hamilton. OK, I guess it is almost impossible to write a Sci Fi novel these days that is totally original, but this book- with its hero very similar to Han Solo, visiting Space Ports, drinking in bars full of aliens, all rather old hat. But one could forgive this if the book was better crafted. For example the hero: taller than most people, a telepath who needed software to augment his psi-powers and now needs a "booster" of sorts he must put on to actually use his powers. Picture the scene: he is being hunted by bounty hunters ( where have we heard this before?) and is sitting on a balcony cafe across the street from where they are staying. Oh dear, they leave their hotel and actually come into the cafe and sit next to him. And astounding as it may seem, they recognise him . . . Come on Eric, you have proved you can do better than this.
