    1 thought on “Mirkheim”

    1. Not quite the end of the adventures of David Falkayn and Nicholas van Rijn. But close. It may even be their descendents that carry on the tales, though I don't recall exactly. I do know that this has a lot of allusions to earlier tales of theirs.But it opens with the discovery of the title planet. Rediscovery, actually. Intelligent beings are mining it for the super-elements that it contains, spawned by a long ago supernova. This means trouble. The companies of the far future have fallen, on the [...]

    2. Only 3 stars for a Poul Anderson? I'm afraid so. I've loved his Polesotechnic League stories with van Rijn and Falkayn for decades; and I've been saving / putting off reading this one for years. It's the last in the series, but unfortunately it's not the best. Anderson is determined to set up the events which lead to the end of the League and the formation of the Terran Empire (for his Flandry series, previously written). So the puzzle solving and wheeler-dealing which were so great in the earli [...]

    3. One of the most interesting premises I've encountered in my epic scifi spree. A planet composed almost entirely of trans-uranic island of stability elements. If you think platinum is expensive Story is a little weak, but a good meditation on the different conceptions of wealth across cultures.

    4. 1978 Grade B. Book B6.2014 Grade B.The Prolog is quite dull and can be skipped. The rest is good but a bit tedious to read in places that are too preachy, philosophical, or descriptive.

    5. When I first picked up this book I didn't think it would be compelling, but Anderson has a way with characters and stories and I loved it.

    6. If I had read the preceding stories I might have found this more interesting. Oh well. Some creative aliens. Lots of space politics.
