Comments The Veils of Azlaroc

  • Daniel

    Fred Saberhagen continues to impress and surprise the hell out of me. In "The Veils of Azlaroc," he tells a science fiction story that is based on a unique concept. I won't go into the particulars, since finding out these details is part of the experience; suffice to say that Saberhagen concocts an intriguing scenario and explores its ramifications with an earnest curiosity that I do not often come across in the genre.(In fact, a recently-published work of fantastic literature is posited on an i [...]

    A decent story with some interesting speculative science.

    So. This is the 2nd book I’ve read THIS YEAR. I know, I know, I’m a terrible human being.Also, I just found out that Mr. Saberhagen passed in 2007 (See the site linked by the image at left or, hell just click here). Total bummer. His Swords books were an integral part of my initial sci-fi induction, and kept me company through many re-reads over the years. In light of that, it’s a little strange (even to me) that I’ve shied so hard away from his sci-fi stuff – there’s a bunch of it!T [...]

    This is a strange little book, lots of setting without too much description, lots of points of view without much character depth, and lots of plotline that didn't seem to go very far. All that said, there's so much depth in the story, so much to intrigue re the setting, that I'll have to read it again and be sure I'm really following it. And while some parts of the book just weren't my thing, the ending will stay with me and it was all I could think about last night. Four stars for staying power [...]

    This was a really solid sci-fi novel.Saberhagen really trended towards pulpy and a little bit repetitive. I really enjoy his work, but I recognize that it's a lot of the same stuff over and over again.This book is kind of refreshing because it exists entirely apart from the rest of his work.It's also got some really good world-building, which I sometimes forget was something that Saberhagen was pretty good at.


  • Lubo

    A great, short sci-fi story. The imagination of the author gets 5 stars. The ending was a little bit anti-climactic as others have pointed out, but the whole concept of the book was so enjoyable that I am willing to overlook the ending and still give it 4 stars. I would recommend it for any fan of sci-fi.


  • Katie

    Way too much plot for 216 pages. There's a black hole *and* a pulsar, which is supposed to explain the weird things that happen in this non-planetary world. Mostly it is a love-story about the nature of time, or possibly a time-story about the nature of love.


  • Charles

    This was one of the first books I ever read by Saberhagen and I enjoyed it very much. But in reading others of his books I was never quite so taken with any of them thereafter. I haven't read a lot of his books but if I could find more like this one I would.


  • David

    Reads a bit like a novelization of some ol' 8-bit text adventure.

    Interesting ideas but the story feels unfinished.
