    One thought on “Beyond the Veil of Stars”

    1. Science fiction novels must have a true sense of weirdness for me to get beyond the first chapter. Too often in this Star Trek/Dr. Who period SF is about comfortable cliches and flat characters, when IMHO it should be startling, unpredictable, new. This is the first Reed book I've read, and it not only has that oddness, that strangeness which marks the best SF for me, but compelling, original characters I cared about. In the climactic scene we are introduced to an alien "city" that was genuinely [...]

    2. Unputdownable!I started my love of Robert Reed books through having a tattered copy of Marrow that i read many times. I only recently started reading his further books and was overjoyed to find that they are all as complex.I highly recommend all the books I have read. And I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

    3. Quite an adventureRobert Reed writes science fiction unlike anything else I've read. No run of the mill stuff here. Unusual and different. Fantastically strange.

    4. ‘Cornell Novak spent most of his youth traversing the American heartland with his father, a fanatical. self-appointed UFO researcher who investigated strange sightings and odd manifestations. His young life abruptly changes one day when the night sky suddenly vanishes, to be replaced by a distorted mirror image of the Earth. But even as ‘The Change’ makes his father a celebrity, a gulf opens between them, leaving Cornell feeling alone and betrayed.Years later, Cornell joins a secret govern [...]

    5. The Nineties was a weird time. After the fall of the resounding American success in the first Persian Gulf war and the Subsequent fall of the Soviet Union, America Emerged as the sole dominant super power in the world. Presently we are in the midst of the political and economic aftermath of this now. However, immediately afterwards, the victorious American public became obsessed with UFOs and Government conspiracies to cover them up. The X-Files became one of the highest rated shows on American [...]

    6. Very original, convincing portrait of non-humanoid aliens, nicely contrasted with a story about a father and son who live on the fringe (UFO researcher). Definitely recommended.Since I saw no mention elsewhere, take note that Beneath the Gated Sky is a direct sequel.

    7. Reed has a great writing style and builds his characters to where you know them almost as well as you know yourself. Beyond the Veil of Stars has a good, solid, but almost boring plot wrapped up in a great buildup of his characters lives and motivations. Nothing extremely exciting, but a good read nonetheless.

    8. I had this book on my book shelf which usually means I want to read it again. Strange book but interesting if you like SF. (spoiler alert) The explanation for the change in the sky doesn't work but the translation into the creatures on High Desert is ingenious.

    9. A few chapters in I realized I'd read this book years ago. But I read it again. It was ok. Slightly depressing view of humanity & exploration of another world. Interesting idea in concept, but wanders a bit in execution.

    10. I'm shocked to find a Robert Reed novel in my book diary list. I though he was "new to me" via FSF.

    11. Reed introduces alien life as very different from us. He brings you into alien worlds and describes them well. There are a few good twists and turns as he unravels the mysteries in this story.

    12. James Cameron chipped off a small piece of this book and bloated it into a movie called Avatar. This does not even begin to explain how wonderfully strange this book is.
