The Plot, the Characters and the Writing have all been taken out and examined in other Reviews - or one may even say eviscerated, it being Science Fiction and some reviewers going at it with a metaphorical blunt knife. The Publisher's blurb gives a good enough brief of the story line and the idea of a man from the past being resurrected after some time is hardly a new idea. The premise of the unincorporated man from near enough our era awakening in the all-incorporated future (which may or may not be what is in store for humanity) holds the promise of a good story. The book mostly delivers and is for Science Fiction fans quite satisfying with a Solar-System wide scope and room for development.
There is some awkwardness of style - one of the obvious pitfalls of co-authorship - and why can't SF writers do love ? Why do they even attempt to write about it ? Romance is possibly more at home in Science Fantasy stories along with magic swords, faery Princesses and the like.The unincorporated man is fortunately bereft of such flummeries though near miraculous events are not ruled out.
"They don't write Science Fiction any more" is a Truism oft heard since the Good Old Days of SF, possibly that is why book lists are crowded with Goblins, Goblets, fabled Trinkets, Mists of Magic and other Juvenilia. Perhaps the unincorporated saga will help re-dress the literary balance. I like the book, I enthused about it so much I was bought the remaining three books of the Saga and I look foreward to reading them in sequence. DJG
