I don't have the "final" edition, I've got the one from the 80's so that's what I read.

I thought Shrine of the Desert Mage was a lot of fun, so decided to try another book from Stephen Goldin. I wasn't disappointed. Like the other book, you can definitely tell this book was written in the 80's. There's a "brashness" to it that wouldn't go over as well today.

I thought the idea of "freezing soldiers" and then just bringing them out when needed, was both interesting and horrifying, and the results were definitely interesting and horrifying. Goldin didn't seem to hold back postulating about what the future would be like, and it was cool to see his imagination just running wild.

There is a lot of sex in the book, but most of it is not described. There is a single line about a rape (that's pretty shocking), but overall, it fits with the story and doesn't seem to be gratuitous.

Extremely TOS-style. Features very underdeveloped Klingons. Again.

Stereotypical characters and inconsistencies make this otherwise action-packed descriptive story a pain to read. I gave up half way through.
Story opens with Alain barely able to function because of not being able to block his telepathic reception, yet in just about every other scene in the book he is apparently untroubled by being in crowds or around others.
And then there is the obligatory (in old space operas) young uneducated nubile female who falls in love with him. That's the point where I stopped.
The last chapter does contain a good insight by the director of the government spy agency: "We ran around in circles, biting our own asses, playing games with life and death as though we were about the most important, most serious task in the universe. And what does it all come to?...I think we were all fools, so caught up in our own self-importance that we couldn't see the sense to anything."

This was kind of old school (which makes sense seeing as it was published in 1988), but still fun. It's a creative, fantasy romp with 3 main characters, a king, a storyteller and a thief. The setting is an alternate middle eastern with all the flavor and beauty that comes with that culture. Now we just have to hunt down the other books.
