Jack McDevitt is that splendid rarity, a writer who is a storyteller first and a science fiction writer second. In his ability to absolutely rivet the reader, it seems to me that he is the logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clark (Stephen King)
McDevitt will grab you by the throat of your curiosity and keep a firm hold until the final chapter (Science Fiction Chronicle)
McDevitt continues his lovingly detailed exploration of interstellar reconnaissance and alien contact ... this one is really quite splendid (Booklist)

These are a few remarks which don't really matter that much in the overall story. The one thing which does appear to be the case in all of the Academy books so far is 1. some sort of disatser befalls the crew or passengers of a give ship, 2. Hutch is sent in or takes part in the disaster, 3. almost all alien contact is of a more primitive form, usually a voracious predator, herbivores almost never play any role in threatening anyone even though on earth for example they can be extremely dangerous e.g. hippos, elephants, rhinos, 4. even the intelligent aliens appear to be equipped with talons, sharp teeth or fangs, surely there must be a few non-violent civilisations out there. In addition, the humans in the stories appear to possess no military ships and very little in the way of proper protocol when sending ships to investigate potential alien contact. The fact that no weapons are carried is very surprising indeed.Read more ›
