I read this one when I was a teenager You see I used to read an awful much of SF when I was a teen Wait that one is still true I still love reading SF and that is probably never going to change You know how I can tell I can recall everything that happened in this novel at doing so I realize I need to see about those seuels I distinctly remember how much I enjoyed this one despite the thing that it grossed me out a bit or maybe that was a part of it It probably wouldn t gross me out as much nowadaysor maybe it would Yeah there are some definitely gross things in this one Mad ones as well But oh how deliciously mad We re talking about a genetically altered and uite chaotic world whose decadent ruling class is flying around in zeppelins The protagonist is a lesbian and the villain is a brilliant sadist If you can t handle descriptions of violence you might want to skip this one They are not terribly long but they re pretty graphic The protagonist of Sky Lords is a young woman growing up in a post genetic wars society The world where she lives is ruled by nobility flying around in zeppelins hence the name sky lords Sounds interesting It is because it is sillyJan our interesting protagonist lives in an society created in an artificial kind of way You see women were genetically engineered to be taller and stronger than men because women are by nature less violent Someone got this great idea it would be good idea if they the ladies are in charge of things This society sounded interesting to me but the author didn t really elaborate on it too much Jan is naturally influenced by this society It is interesting to note that she feels a bit inferior because she is a little shorter than the average This made me think of The Brave New World Nevertheless Jan is still very much an albeit a one that is a bit sensitive However our young protagonist is taken from this interesting society and has to or less struggle uite desperately for her life for the rest of the novel Things just seem to go from bad to worse for poor little her but in a way that makes novel very entreating to read As Jan is trying to survive and find her place among the zeppelin ruling class we get introduced to other characters who are often than not a poor excuse for a human being but that seems to be the norm with this one If we want to read about greed and power struggled pick this one Without revealing too much let s just say that the only likeable creature to be found was a talking panteraBesides our lovely protagonist the only character that stands out for me is Milo intelligent sadist manipulative he is superbly portrayed It is ironical that he is all things that his name would imply he isn t The novel does explore the dark side of humankind often than not Milo could be considered the incarnation of that dark side Despite all that it is hard not to be fascinated by him He is not a two dimensional villain He is endlessly fascinating and there seems to be some kind of aura of power around him that you as reader can sense However I must say that the characterization doesn t really go into dept Jan and Milo are the only ones the reader really gets to know The story is fast paced so it could be said that it doesn t leave a lot of space for character development YETHow come that I remember reading stories that were just as action packed and that had credible characters We must admire the way Jan is determined to survive her will to go on but wouldn t it be nice if we could see of the character development Her upbringing in a feminist society is hardly ever mentioned once she gets captured it would be nice if there was some inner battle going on that would make the transition realisticThis novel isn t without its flaws but it is a lot of fun to read Brosnan was very imaginative about possible uses of genetic manipulation and engineering and the conseuences it could have on human society He does seem to have a lot of ideas about it and in his hands this topic doesn t feel as something already seen to0 many times He doesn t go into psychological states of the characters nor does he create a complex moral dilemma that will make you think in a way the great ones do Brosnan creates a great story set in an interesting world a story with a cool protagonist a story that keeps you engaged What to ask for Take it for what it is Not the best SF

The Sky Lords Sky Lords #1 Read ó 102 John Brosnan Ï 2 Summary E against both the spreading biological blight on the ground and the great airships that dominate the skies Controlle. Oh man Where do I even begin with this one I had been looking for this book for decades Decades I read it as a kid I think it was misfiled as YA fiction thanks to its slim page count and bad cover art and some combination of its ideas and age inappropriateness stuck with me ever since But not its title Only recently have s search engine and network of sellers gotten advanced enough for me to find it A very similar thing happened to me with Marooned In RealtimeSo is this book good Probably not But it s been in the back of my head so long that I honestly don t know Let me spoil the hell out of this because the odds of you finding a copy are pretty longOur heroine Jan is a member of a warrior tribe of s Their community is scraping by in the aftermath of the Gene Wars fighting a blighted landscape that makes survival difficult The s have been genetically modified and so have their men who are small and docile But this is one of those postapocalypses where history and science have been lost and Jan understands the facts of her life to be the manifest will of a feminist godThe community is obliged to offer yearly tribute to a Sky Lord one of a number of blimp warships that float above the ravaged earth But the blight has made tribute impossible They instead stage an attack on the airship It goes badly and Jan winds up the sole female survivor of her community taken aboard the Sky Lord as a slaveThere she meets Milo another slave He s cruel hated by his peers and mysterious but he takes a not very wholesome interest in Jan and serves as her protector Jan s matriarchal assumptions are at odds with the horrifying rape culture of the world on the airship and her ahistorical understanding of her origins is belittled by Milo in lengthy discourses about biological determinismThe airship is in a decaying state it predates the apocalypse and the people running it no longer grasp the technology behind it Each generation of fixes is cruder than the last Everything is slowly failing Gradually we learn that Milo has superhuman abilities Jan does too of course like most humans she can expect to live to 200 in perfect health albeit in a world brimming with mutants deadly superplagues and landscape devouring fungus But Milo can do things no one has ever seen The 200 year lifespan is revealed to have been a political compromise arrived at when immortality was discovered It was still enough to destabilize the world and spark the Gene Wars though A few people the most powerful officials or those in privileged positions in the gene editing corporations broke the law and became immortal It eventually becomes clear that Milo is one such immortal with a bunch of other upgrades to boot He s a war criminal hiding in plain sight and one of the few people in the world who understands how civilization descended to its current barbarism He has a scheme and it becomes obvious that he will pursue it with exactly the same masculine moral bankruptcy that destroyed the world in the first placeI won t bore you with further details Neither does the author frankly this thing wraps up with a curtness normally reserved for Poochie s return to his home planet But Jan saves the day and is free to pursue her dreams of restoring her home utopia And despite the lengthy Milo solilouies preceding it any number of which could have been written by Ben Shapiro and despite Jan s initial ignorance and despite the ueasiness we are made to feel about the s genetically neutering their men we feel pretty good about her odds and this outcomeSo What do I like about thisI like the genetic technology stuff This is a good and underused apocalypse Orson Scott Card explores some of these ideas Oryx and Crake is probably their best known treatment Sky Lords predates it by a decade But this one really packs them in Frankly I think it surpasses either of those works in its expansive pulpy vision though not in the artfulness of its presentationI like the fallen ageretreat to medievalism Obviously this is not an innovation invented by this author Canticle for Leibowitz usually gets the credit for this idea But it s a good one I really like the inclusion of survivors of the apocalypse and a plausible mechanism for making them the monsters responsible for it This is probably the cleverest idea in the book and one that could have been used much than it was uantum Thief shares some of this the idea that being in the right job at the right scientific inflection point could confer immortal godhood in an ensuing dystopia and I totally love it And I guess I like Milo horror that he is Parts of this reread reminded me of Lentz in Galatea 22 But it s been a long time since I read that Milo s backstory is much less developed than it probably should be There s a deeper novel waiting hereThe exposition sexual politicsviolence and terseness are all pretty bad But it was great to reread this I still think there s something there
