This review is from: The Lost Traveller (Paperback)
Having thoroughly enjoyed this hugely entertaining sci-fi epic as a teenager - I'd happened upon it high up in my parents' bookshelves and, owing to it's intentionally difficult-to-reach location and it's striking cover (a leather-clad biker with crossbow, surrounded by flames) decided it was a book I must read - I was thrilled to see that this new Dr Cicero edition had been published. The attention-grabbing cover has changed, for the better; classier, more subtle, and altogether a more accurate representation of the story, and indeed the quality of writing, contained within it. The new typeface is impressive and easy on the eyes - which ain't as useful as they used to be! There's also an excellent interview with Wilson himself, which gives us a great insight into his inspirations, his research, and his own life experiences, and confirms that he really does know of what he writes.
But most importantly it was wonderful to revisit this vivid post-apocalyptic world, to spend some more time with Long Range and his posse, and to find that the novel has really stood the test of time. Everything I'd enjoyed about it as a teenager I still enjoyed - the setting, the characters, the action, the wonderful mix of sci-fi and western, etc. But reading it now I found an added depth - a mysticism and lyricism which was perhaps lost on me before.
Welcome back Long Range.
And thanks, Steve Wilson, for this awesome epic.
When are they gonna make the movie?
