The Star Sloop by Verity Fountain-Douglas
The Life and Times of Grant Elik, 'the Great Gunner' (Volume 1)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The first volume of the critical Life and Times of Grant Elik, widely known as 'the Great Gunner,' the revolutionary recruit who used the Interstellar Armed Fleet to hold sway in the Outer Worlds later in the present millennium. The adventure is described from the standpoint of a 'debunking' writer working at the epoch's end, bringing liberal ironic humour to the task, while facing the self-imposed challenge to produce a work having some measure of literary merit in the classic line of science fiction and space adventure. With the exception of a horse or two, all the characters in this first volume of a quartet are human, with characteristics worked out sufficiently to engage the interest of the general reader motivated by human problems and failings.
