A nice new review of Marseguro…

…is now up at the McNally-Robinson Bookstore site. It’s by Chadwick Ginther. An excerpt:

Regina Author, Edward Willett has filled his second novel with both memorable characters, great world-building and interesting science. The planet of Marseguro becomes a character itself under Willett’s stewardship, and the Body Purified, a frightening yet believable antagonist. Each of Marseguro’s point of view characters face hard choices when the Body Purified finds Hansen’s hidden refuge, choices that serve to define both them, and the future of their worlds.

Willett has crafted a grand science fiction story that manages to pay tribute both to the galaxy spanning empires of Space Opera, and the examination of technologies just out of our current grasp. Dedicated SF fans will even spot some homages to one of science fiction’s most venerable franchises, and to one of Canada’s famous genre practitioners. Marseguro is well worth the read, and its sequel Terra Insegura, is due in May 2009. A release I am hotly anticipating.
