Mission to Universe book. Gordon R. Dickson was a master of his craft and he continually carved brilliant stories based on the science of his time. I have never read any Gordon R. Dickson that I didn't enjoy. I've also only found a few of his books that I thought were riveting (Forever Man, Soldier Ask Not). This is not one of them but highly recommended anyway.

There had to be a reason why that isolated human colony had been able to survive mankind's implacable enemies

He was leaving Earth in an untested ship with a crew chosen by neccesity and with nothing but faith to guide him. His onlt yhope was to find habitable worlds in the unexplored reaches of space ahead. Thus began Man's first mission to the uncharted universe. There had to be a reason why that isolated human colony had been able to survive mankind's implacable enemies. But nobody had been able to get to the quaintly named Dunroamin to find out.

Gordon R. Dickson (1923 - 2001) Gordon Rupert Dickson was born in Alberta, Canada, in 1923 but resided in the United States from the age of thirteen. Along with Robert A. Heinlein, he is regarded as one of the fathers of military space opera, his Dorsai! sequence being an early exemplar of both military SF and Future History.

Bill Waltham has a sneaking suspicion that a few important details were purposely withheld from him when he receives his assignment to the planet Dilbia.

The book itself was okay. It’s an adventure story with a strong and somewhat unusual central character. It reads as a series of harrowing escapes. The ending was very weak, all but pointless. I wonder if this was written as a novella then the ending pasted on to make it a book.

However, the editing of the Kindle book was just awful. Even in the first few paragraphs there are several clear mistakes. In the middle third there are whole pages that are missing. I cannot tell how much was left out.

What could anyone say, except once again a master writer has created an excellent Sci-fi that is the thing that new writers study and try to measure up to. I have yet to read anything from Mr. Dickson that wasn't a best seller a publishing and remains so today. Hope you enjoy reading or rereading this novel as I have.

I read the book with lots of hope. It is badly written, difficult to follow and plot lines are weak. In the Kindle version, there are many spelling mistakes also. The concept they use to travel thousands of light-years away within days is unique and interesting. Other than that, it was disappointing .

THIS IS THE WORST COMMERCIALLY-PRODUCED EBOOK I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED!! I have the original paperback, and I had an urge to do a digital re-read. The so-called publisher obviously didn't hire a proofreader; I counted 21 major errors in the first chapter. It was too annoying to read any further. Scanning and doing OCR on an old book is only the first step. I've read dozens of Project Gutenberg books, but also more recent books still in copyright. Nothing as bad as this. Even old-fashioned paper books have errors (I used to make pencil corrections in the margin) but really . . .

In this Very detailed and imaginative story Gordon Dickinson shows his great talent for writing science fiction that engages the mind of the reader and rewards their persistence in reading to the end.

I do not believe that I have ever seen such incompetent editing in my 74 years. I could have done better in the sixth grade. The story idea was fine but hastily put together, disjointed.

This was a different kind of story lots of fantasy and science but we have a very reluctant hero who thinks way to much,but he can be very daring and when he does WOW
The lack of proofing resulted in many grammar errors, missing text and spelling errors that interfered with the enjoyment of the story.
