"The Long, Strange Trip of the Pathfinder Ship Pegasus continues.
EdenWorld has beer-colored seas, amber skies, and is inhabited by griffins, minotaurs, vampires, werewolves and other fantastic creatures who have enslaved the human population.
Commander Bill Keeler and his landing party visit this strange world and start off along a highway paved in golden stones to meet the powerful ruler of a mythical kingdom. Along the way, they encounter a mentally deficient crop guardian, a malfunctioning robot with a failing power cell, and an anthropomorphic lion with cowardice issues.
Also, there’s a B-Story involving the kidnapping of Goneril Lear’s son; a C-Story involving Phil Redfire falling for a hot woman on a cold night; a D-Story where another character schemes to get relieved from his duties; and an E-Story involving exiles on the planet’s surface with an amazing knack for adapting the ship’s advanced technology.
Five stories for the price of one; good deal, right?
The Worlds Apart novels have been described as vivid, hilarious and reminiscent of Douglass Adams in his heyday. EdenWorld is the second of twelve."
