    The setting and premise of this book are its only redeeming factors with original ideas and world building that made me look past the parts I disliked and there were many The concept of aliens being impossible for humans to communicate with was a refreshing contrast to the anthropomorphic aliens of pop culture It was fun to hear descriptions of these completely original creatures and how they attempt to relate to humans I also lik

    It is some time in the future Earth is at an uneasy peace the old warring states devolved into statelets; but at a price and the price is stagnation Not least because first contact has been made with not just one alien race but several all enigmatic piling out of Netherspace hyperspace if you like And as Wittgenstein once said if a lion could speak we wouldn't understand it same here The aliens take things fro

Aliens came to Earth forty years ago Their anatomy proved unfathomable and all attempts at communication failed But through trade humanity gained technology that allowed them to colonise the stars The price live humans for every alien faster than light driveKara's sister was one of hundred. I came across the publicity for this book at a science fiction convention Shortly thereafter I came across both authors in the hotel bar Guys I promised you an honest review and to be fair it s the only kind I doI must confess myself a hopeless Trek saddo but even I get fed up with the aliens all having bilateral symmetry even though I know this is to save the nonexistent special effects budget In addition the aliens are mostly based on something we can already identify Hence you get reptilian bad guys felines baduntrustworthy etc And there s always the good old Universal Translator or some variant thereof to ensure there are nomisunderstandings Not in this book Andy Lane and Nigel Foster have burned the usual script and stamped the ashes underfoot It s been forty years since the Gliese showed up and announced their presence via a light show on the face of the moon They look like three limbed piles of wet leather and communication isimpossible What contact there is goes on via the medium of trade and the Gliese are ready to give us advanced alien tech in return for a range of random human artefacts Most of these are oddly commonplace ones The results range from the amusing to the downright creepy An accident with a Gliese anti gravity generator leaves the Arc de Triomphe suspended three meters above the ground permanently The inhabitants of an entire Alpine village are much less fortunateThe authors have created a post first contact scenario that s fresh inventive and totally credible Humanity has been introduced to the local galactic scene via the Gliese Netherspace drive There are human colonies on the planets of some of the nearer stars AI is now commonplace in most fields of daily life That said the willingness of the Gliese to give out tech to just about anyone has led to the demise of national governments A loose patchwork of city states survives I struggled with this at first before realising that from an anthropological point of view it s not unlikely The downside of course is that since all these advances are based on alien tech human R and D is stagnating It s against this background that a fast paced and enthralling story unfolds A shipload of religious colonists has been kidnapped by another one of the species humanity has met since leaving the solar system The rescue team sent to bring them home comes face to face with the fact that human society is failing socially morally and ethically even as it reaches for the stars The alien cultures they meet are so very alien that no frame of reference is possible As they persevere against incredible odds the truth about the past forty years of alien contact slowly comes into focus Andy Lane and Nigel Foster have done their research for this book with consummate skill I found myself thinking of Professor Hawking s uote about an alien visit being like Columbus and the Indians This book puts a brilliant new spin on that idea It deserves to do really really well as does the seuel Erm there will be one won t there

Iate As an ex army sniper Kara's role is clear But artist Marc has no combat experience although the team's pre cog Tse is adamant that he has a part to play All three know that success is unlikely For how will they negotiate with aliens when communication between the species is impossible. An enjoyable space romp based around the fresh premise of a galaxy full of alien species none of whom we have the faintest clue how to communicate with The broader world in which this story is set occasionally seems interesting than the main plot and the ending somewhat fizzles But nevertheless this is a solid opening instalment and there s certainly of this tale worth telling
