      It s a small wonder that there wasn t a continuation of this story past this collaboration This is also a blemish on the ratings system on As of writing this review, Murasaki holds a 3.26 rating Really That s pretty bad At the tangible risk of making this a persuasive essay, let me tell you why it s not worthy of such a low score Murasaki is a novel that 7 Nebula award winners collaborated on 1 Poul Anderson2 Greg Bear3 Gregory Benford4 David Brin5 Nancy Kress6 Frederick Pohl7 Robert SilverbergI [...]

      Take six of the world s best Science Fiction writers, given them two co orbiting worlds with very alien life forms, and have them each write a chapter BRILLIANT Great reading about the same places people but as seen through different authors eyes Wonderful to see different writing styles and story telling from six of the best.

      Around a nearby star, a pair of twin planets orbit a point in space, as though each are the moon of the other And because both planets support life, it s only natural for Humanity to send expeditions This is the case of the star christened Murasaki, and the planets Genji and Chujo, and Murasaki tells a series of stories about humanity s explorations of these planets and what they learn about the inhabitants, and themselves.Take two classic SF authors known for hard science fiction Tell them to d [...]

      Well I ve complained about not enough background work in novels, this collection is proof that you can have too much Because of the nature of the work, a series of poorly connected short stories, each short has much of the world data extensively extolled It really violates the show me don t tell me school of writing and suffers badly for it If each of the shorts were a novel with the same amount of background spread through them, they would probably be much better since the authors would be able [...]

      If you re looking for The Tale of Genji, you ll be disappointed this has nothing to do with the author of the world s first novel What it is is actually a multi author collaborative novel, with each subsequent author building all the previous work It s a sort of scaled up campfire serial story, and just about as uneven as you d expect, but it s consistently readable and inventive, and it s certainly interesting to see how different authors bend and twist the same basic world and riff on each oth [...]

      I read this many years ago but a lot of it remains with me This is one of the greatest shared universe multiple author anthologies a science fiction reader could read I don t believe there is a Kindle version but any fan of the authors featured Poul Anderson, Greg Bear, Gregory Benford, David Brin, Nancy Kress, Frederik Pohl will enjoy it.There are several stories all different but connected by this strange, rich, and well developed world.

      Wanted to like this, given the amount of plotting and planning and the ambitious goals, but twas not enjoyable And by following the editor s advice and reading the Appendices first, I had spoilers going into Kress finale.

      I like science fiction and found this one to be really cool I love the interactions between 3 life forms outside of humanity The book highlights how much humans want to control even when they really have no influence.
