Wizard Author John Varley Free download ò 102 Free download Ú PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free é John Varley John Varley é 2 Review One of the greatest science fiction epics ever written John Varley's Titan Wizard and Demon comprise a groundbrea. There a lot to love in the second Gaia book I was honestly expecting a straight carryover from the first novel with its surprising end and lead making the next title Wizard something much than I might have expected but I was surprised Decades have passed in an eyeblink and Titan has turned herself into the goose that lays the golden eggs opening up exploration and exploitation to her artificial moon Of course with this fantastic alien landscape there s the Titanides the 29 times over ambisexual centaurs who like to do it every which way they can even with humans and killer blimps and vast and amazing adventurous locations full of glory and beauty None of it is really uite easy to exploit Nor do many people have the desire After all Titan herself is a god or near enough technologically so as to be the utter master of her domain except for the twelve distributed ancient AI intelligences that make up her bulk Our captain is old but still looking young by this point and since she s the Wizard and it s traditional to sing the Yellow Brick Road when they go on expeditions and status updates with all these distributed intelligences that are gods in their own rights we re thrown into intrigue and a possible rebellion If you think all of this is pretty simple think again The novel is rife with uestions of sexuality and cultural weirdness and lesbianism and even eye rolling wackiness of a misinterpretation of rape that could only come out of a secluded orbital community of Wiccan lesbians who shun all men but import sperm to keep their numbers drag one of their members out of the community and put her into Gaia Let sparks fly Is this novel nothing but sex It feels like it It s not horrible tho It s weird Vastly weird The centaur aliens are nuts about it and I m just thankful there s a cheat sheet in the book that breaks down all the coupling combinations And I thought that hind sex and frontal sex was confusing enough when there was a profusion of multiple sexual organsFrom the standpoint of imagination and weirdness and worldbuilding and oddities this book is brilliant and beautiful Even the uestions regarding sex and perception were sometimes clever and insightful even when it sometimes became enragingThe fact is for all its faults this novel is fascinating and dense with goodies and is full of great ideas My personal meh about the underlying story may be just me Everything surrounding it is gorgeous

I need to read this again I read it too fast Add Titanides to the list of fictional creatures I would not mind beingSo I read this again recently This book is awesome It s got the Titanides who have multiple genitals and complicated mating methods based on music In fact their language is based on music they sing they play awesome musical instruments and they kick ass I kind of wish there was about them and less about the humans though the human characters are cool You have Robin who comes from a hyper feminist world full of radical women She s tough and badass She has severe seizures You have gentle Chris who has manic episodes They come to Gaea to be cured Gaea tells them they have to go on an adventure and prove themselvesThey encounter two characters from the last book Cirocco who is depressed and an alcoholic from having the fate of the Titanides in her hands and Gaby who is still in love with Cirocco With the help of the Titanides they go on a crazy adventure andWell reading the book to find out what will happen is a great idea John Varley fills this book with strong varied characters He s richly imaginative and manages to add ueer characters without blowing a huge look at me these characters are ueer I m so progressive trumpetSo if you want to read about centaur like creatures with multiple genitals I suggest buying his books directly from his site Start with Titan the first book in the series and keep reading123119Read it again It s still damn good The characters their development The setting Really you should read John Varley instead of osc He s good at making diverse strong women who actually have personalities and don t just exist for men to drool over and Titanides continue to be one of the best aliens

Wizard Author John Varley Free download ò 102 Free download Ú PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free é John Varley John Varley é 2 Review King trilogy that will live forever Human explorers have entered the sprawling mind of Gaea Now they must fight h. I m really enjoying this trilogy You could put it in the humans explore vast space habitat category in company with things like Rendezvous with Rama and Ringworld but I think that misses the appeal of Varley s Gaea books Varley brings really weird shit to the table as all SF should but hard SF sometimes underdelivers on In addition to blowing you away with exterior vistas he s digging his hooks into your subconscious and unearthing some disturbing stuff On top of that he s funny This series almost reminds me of Terry Pratchett s early SF like the not just a Ringworld spoof Strata though Varley s work is much darkerVolume 1 Titan covered the initial exploration and established the setup Wizard returns after a number of decades where things appear relatively stable Gaea is recognized by the UN and permits a certain number of human tourists and even immigrants but plays with them in the same capricious way It s very different in feel from the first volume almost a little too peaceful and threatening until you realize you re just being softened up before everything goes to hell It doesn t outstay its welcome and sets the stage for a cataclysmic third volume Demon which I can t wait to readThe main attraction of Wizard is Varley s amazing ingenuity in creating new alien species The setup allows for some extremely improbable scenarios much like Strata again and he exploits this to the hilt blimps and submarines buzz bombs sand wraiths and the crown jewel the centaur like Titanides with their musical language and multiple sexual organs You ll learn a lot about the latter especially because there is a lot of centaur sex in this book If you think you might be put off by lots of centaur sex this is probably not the book for you Let s just say where volume 1 comes with an accompanying map volume 2 comes with a cheat sheet listing the 29 possible Titanide sexual ensembles He s eually imaginative with human societies of the near to medium futureAnd the writing is terrific Hard boiled for the most part but with the occasional gem thrown in Early on our first glimpse of a Titanide She thundered down the seawall road arms held out behind her like the silver lady on a Rolls Royce A lovely image and a useful one compact and poetic

    EBOOK NEW Wizard Author John Varley Þ John Varley One of the greatest science fiction epics ever written? Well no Not even close Some of it crosses over into into the very silly Buzz bomb for example what is this a Dead Kennedys album? Actually that might be weirdly appropriate considering the musical communication between the centaurs This book contains a lot of good ideas including the basic premise of a living ringworld and the splintering personalities b

    EBOOK NEW Wizard Author John Varley Þ John Varley Spoiler Alert Wizard is the second book of the Gaea Trilogy by John VarleyJust as Titan begins in a somewhat normal universe and escalates into an absurd universe so Wizard picks up at the same gonzo level that Titan ended at and escalates into something even absurdThis book takes place roughly 75 years after the end of Titan and the two main characters return Rocky Jones and Gaby Plauget When Gaea made Rocky the Wizard of Gaea sh
