Comments The Pirates of Ersatz

  • Debbie Zapata

    What do you do if you are from a planet famous for its pirates, but you would rather play with electronics? Well, you unconsciously absorb all your Grandfather's pirate wisdom until you are old enough to be on your own, then you go off to another planet and start working on the Master Plan for your life: (a) to achieve splendid things as an electronic engineer, (b) to grow satisfactorily rich, (c) to marry a delightful girl, and (d) end life a great man.But when do Master Plans ever run smoothly [...]

    This Hugo nominated novel is a lot of fun, it didn't win the Hugo, neither did the other nominees "The Sirens of Titan" and "Dorsai!" they all lost out to "Starship Troopers", a pretty nice group of novels for 1959. I'd decided to read it in celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day 2017, so a few days later I had time to read it. The beginning is decidedly pirate free but the fast moving story doesn't take too long to get to the pirates. I've never seen pirates such as these and the way they turn a [...]

    A short novella of a very early type: the monsters on the new world are giant Earth creatures created by a failed terraforming project. Interesting to those who like the tropes of the Rocket Age, but a problematic text in many ways. Why is the female crewman in charge of cleaning the rocket? I was kind of hoping, since she was the love interest, that Crewman Carol was going to turn out to be a Polish man, like the recent Pope also named Carol. Alas, the twist was that even in the future, the lov [...]

    Great fun! One of the classics that I've read a number of times over the decades (yah, I'm old), and have enjoyed it every time. It holds up well over the years, unlike a lot of other books.It is a classic Leinster book, so if you don't like his style then you won't like this. Not laugh-out-loud funny, but certainly a light-hearted romp. What saves it, I think, is Leinster's wry humour and clear insights into people and societies.

    Planetary adventure, as Bron Hoddan attempts to runaway from his native planet of Zan, where his relatives are to be executedHe escapes to the planet Walden hoping to establish himself as an electrical engineer but then one day the police come looking for him

  • Sean Brennan

    This is a great little story, very reminiscent of Vance albeit without the eloquence of Jack's love of language, highly recommended.

  • Emily

    This science fiction pulp story really shows its age. Originally published in 1959, this story is about an electrical engineer, trying to make an honest living, and being sucked back into the ways of his space pirate family. He is dashing and clever, slyly tricks the wealthy into giving him their loot, and gets the girl to fall in love with him without even trying. I found the story plodding and flat. The characters were barely even caricatures, let alone fleshed out people with personalities, m [...]

    This story started life as 'The Pirates of Ersatz', serialized in 'Astounding Science Fiction' in 1959. It was collected into a novel, and appeared in an 'Ace Double' with 'The Mutant Weapon' in the same year. In 1989 it was released as a stand-alone novel, and this is the version I have.The story concerns one Bron Hoddan, born on the planet Zan, where everyone is a space pirate. However, Bron seeks a life of challenges and excitement in the world of engineering, so moves to Walden - the most ci [...]

    The Pirates of Ersatz features a protagonist who never fit in with piracy or civilized society. He tries to impress a girl and improve electronic engineering on the staid planet Walden. (Why is it called Walden if the people aren't Transcendentalist?) Instead, he is blamed for an accidental death and has to flee to a feudal planet full of bloodthirsty customs about honor and looting. He is tricked into fighting for the cunning Lady Fani, and he succeeds, though he accidentally gives away her fat [...]

    It was not mere impulsive action when Bron Hoddan started for the planet Walden by stowing away on a ship that had come to his native planet to hang all his relatives. He'd planned it long before. It was a long-cherished and carefully worked out scheme. He didn't expect the hanging of his relatives, of course. He knew that they'd act grieved and innocent, and give proof that they were simple people leading blameless lives. They'd make their would-be executioners feel ashamed and apologetic for h [...]

  • Gary Holt

    One of the best of Murray Leinster in my opinion. It's got the classic Leinster hero who's a very smart engineer, turns out to be surprisingly good at manipulating people, takes bold and clever action, but can be a bit clueless about people at times. (And those are the times you are snickering at him.)This book has some of Leinster's best social satire--at times approaching even the Retief books by Keith Laumer, but with a much lighter touch. It also has a pretty good plot: a brilliant engineer [...]

  • Richard

    I read the original "The Pirates of Ersatz" version and thought it very weak. The characters are flat, the science is irrelevant, and worst of all, the writing is clumsy: adverbs abound, word choice is careless and repetitive. Never have I seen more characters "seem to look almost peevishly" at someone. The loose plot ties up a little at the end, but not enough to save the novel. The main character comes across as a Candide-type without the charm. There were elements of satire but it's hard to m [...]

  • João Sousa

    It is often said that you can not be a fan of Murray Leinster and Ivan Efremov at the same time as they represent completely different types of fiction.I am a fan of Efremov."The Pirates of Zan" (or "Erzatz") never really develops any of its characters, and these soulless beings wonder in a simple plot until it eventually reaches some kind of climax. And that's it.

  • Libromaniac

    Both an old fashioned space opera, and a cutting satire, Murray Leinster's The Pirates of Ersatz can be enjoyed on multiple levels. Thrill to tales of space piracy, smile wryly at the follies of men, nod sagely as Mr. Leinster elucidates the underpinnings of economics. An enjoyable and thought provoking read from a time when men were men, and women were NOT to be trifled with.

  • Jesi

    I actually really enjoyed this book, and would suggest that everyone who enjoys humorous sci-fi to read it. But, it's not Great Literature, which is why I'm only giving it three stars. It's light, fluffy reading and enjoyable.

  • stormie

    what a fun, tongue in cheek story! it was an enjoyable light read. i especially liked the end of it, wherein the pirates are basically rock stars, photobombing in pictures and having girls shrieking over them. hilarious.

    Read as part of the A Logic Named Joe Collection.

  • Nick

    A little slow to get going so don't give up too soon. If you have liked his other books this one will probably work for you too.

  • Jeffrey

    Cute, funny and an easy read

  • JT

    As classic as classic gets. Leinster doesn't get the sort of love Heinlein or Asimov or Clarke do, but he deserves it.

  • Jeff Crosby

    Engaging 1950s space opera from one of the more popular authors of the era. This novel is not as clever as Leinster's Med Ship stories, but it is a short, light read.

  • Jennifer Hargrove

    It was a good book, cute, but ended too abruptly. Alot of the sentence structure was werid and hard to read.
