John Varley is a writer with enormous reserves of imagination and this book pulses with a gonzo energy as he throws in to the mix a bunch of fun and varied and original ideas In a manner that s similar to the inventive classic Babel 17 the plot doesn t always live up to the exciting ideas and vivid characters and the colorful dynamics coursing through its pages but this book was always thoroughly enjoyable and provocative and I definitely want to read of his work

Weird book Opiuchi Hotline by John Varley the author of the Gaian trilogy is about a lot of stuff and all rolled up into a hard sci fi Bradburyan fantasy mix I guess if I had to break it down and slap a label on it I would say this is a first contact story though a very original one This is a difficult book to review it was kind of hard to follow and yet strangely compelling like Dane Cook narrating a children s book contextually OK but edgy and not just a little disconcerting Varley describes a uirky but brutal social order where Earth had been invaded centuries before and humans were denigrated to second class status amongst aliens and even Earthlings as auatic mammals were considered advanced So Long and Thanks for All the FishMost interesting Varley anticipates the writing of William Gibson in Neuromancer and the bio punk sub genre Hotline exhibits bioengineering and manipulation cosmetic sex changes overlapping multi level cloning with memory recording and nanotechnology This is also reminiscent of Joe Haldeman s work in All My Sins Remembered also published in 1977 and There Is No Darkness published 1983 and the similarity in these works and the closeness in time suggest a collective literary movement in this direction
