The Well Of Stars The Well Of Stars by Robert Reed
reviewed by Greg L. Johnson
The novel continues the story of the Great Ship, first introduced in Marrow and Mere. The Great Ship is a fabulous creation, a spaceship so large that there is a planet hidden at its center. No one knows who built it. It was found and boarded by human beings, who, along with a host of other species, decided to take the ship on a ride right out of the Milky Way into an unknown part of space, the Inkwell Nebula.

Mere Mere by Robert Reed
reviewed by Matthew Cheney
The author's imagination is so fecund, his writings so fueled by tremendously strange and vivid visions of distant futures and strange forms of life, that each story benefits from our memories of the wonders he has delivered in the past, so that with the first paragraph of each new tale, our readerly desires are funnelled down into a single yearning to know what marvels await us this time.

Coelacanths Coelacanths by Robert Reed
reviewed by Peter D. Tillman
The story is written in four parallel strands -- difficult enough at novel-length, and Peter would have thought near-impossible in 25 pages. It's a far-future tale of humanity triumphant -- a wonderful update of James Blish's classic "Surface Tension" and The Seedling Stars. Think of scaling, and of Clarke's Law. Think of human nature, changeless over the millennia, past and future....

Marrow Marrow by Robert Reed
reviewed by Peter D. Tillman
In the far future, humans discover a derelict starship the size of Jupiter, out on the galactic rim. They claim salvage rights and get some of the Great Ship's machinery running. The owners put the Great Ship into service as -- the galaxy's grandest cruise-liner! 50,000 years later, there are some 200 billion passengers and crew aboard, a fifth of the way through a leisurely circumnavigation of the Milky Way. Then a Mars-size "planet" is discovered, somehow suspended at the very core of the Great Ship!

The Dragons of Springplace The Dragons of Springplace by Robert Reed
reviewed by Georges T. Dodds
The sense of nostalgia and wonder of Ray Bradbury, the fantastic weirdness of A. Merritt, the settings and characters reminiscent of Cordwainer Smith, and the alien ecologies and humour of Stanley Weinbaum, have been fused and remolded and modernized into Robert Reed.

An Exaltation of Larks An Exaltation of Larks by Robert Reed
reviewed by S. Kay Elmore
The author has spun out a tale about the end of the world that may indeed be about the beginning of life. He uses the seeds of an ancient mythology and grows it into an enchanting story.
