    One thought on “Orbit Unlimited”

    1. Four interlinked stories that together tell the story of how Earth s first colonisation of another planet comes about, just before it s space programme is about to close down for good.The final story is far and away the best in the collection but by then it s too late we ve already had to sit through a lot of run of the mill SF that was barely entertaining Although we are introduced to the characters of the final story in the preceeding stories, they do little to flesh them out or establish them [...]

    2. Well, this is the least fun Poul Anderson book I ve read so far There were nuggets of greatness but there were a few issues for me One, this was like 3 short stories ended with a novella they were labeled parts I IV but it s definitely a few short works combined into one story that didn t really need each other or feel like a full story The first was a worry by elites about a group of Constitutionalists gaining power, and trying to figure out what to do with them The constitutionalists eventuall [...]

    3. I grabbed this slim paperback to read on a trip when I knew there d be a long layover in the Denver airport And that s where I finished it It was just about a perfect choice for reading under those conditions not too heavy but intriguing enough to keep my interest despite multiple distractions.The story opens in a future era that has a domineering government and enormous social stratification such that most of humanity leads brutish lives while the ruling elites enjoy themselves at the top of th [...]

    4. Poul Anderson is a legend, but this is far from his best work.Rather than a novel, this is a collection of interconnected stories about establishing a colony on a distant planet a little like Ray Bradbury s Martian Chronicles, but not nearly as well executed.The first story could be skipped altogether It s mostly a 40 page infodump that introduces a couple of characters you ll see later on The twist ending is so contrived that you ll find yourself rolling your eyes and maybe laughing out loud.In [...]

    5. Three previously published short stories put together in book form They are related and do tell a complete story but they do not mesh together very well The first tells of a minority group forced to leave Earth The second tells of the voyage to another star and of the arrival The third takes place several years later on the planet and in my opinion is probably the best of the three.

    6. Good SiFi story Poul Anderson always adds just the right amount of real science to his stories to make the SiFi background of the story a workable, believable world Recommended

    7. Interesting book A bit slow at times, but a great story Typical Poul Anderson Hard sci fi to be sure Probably too much for the casual reader.

    8. This is a nicely executed book it s basically three short glimpses into the lives of earth s first pioneers As others have mentioned the third story is the best of the lot.
