Perry Rhodan #1803: Schimbaa The Giant
Hubert Haensel
Vector Enterprises (magazine, 48 pages, $2.95 US/$3.95 CAN)
Publication date: July, 1998

Latest installment in the epic German space opera, brought back to these shores by the energetic and dedicated folks at Vector Enterprises. With this issue the series goes bi-monthly, and also includes a short story featuring Rhodan by Rudiger Schafer, as well as science fact article "Real Space" by Randy Jost, and fascinating blueprints for a Junk Yard starship by Christoph Anczykowski. Vector Enterprises has done a superb job of augmenting their exciting main serial with imaginative short pieces, just as Forry Ackerman did so well with the original english paperback series.

[Cover] Perry Rhodan #1802: Stepchildren of the Sun
Hubert Haensel
Vector Enterprises magazine
It was impressive enough when start-up venture Vector Enterprises snagged the Perry Rhodan license a few months ago, and equally impressive when they published the first two issues in a thoroughly professional manner, with quality translations and fine original art. Now the third monthly issue arrives, on time and wrapped up with nice interior art and the final segment of the series summation. Now if only they'd bring back the shock-shorts and other short fiction that graced the back pages of the 1970s paperback series -- and first published such folks as Steven Utley -- we'd nominate them for sainthood.

[Cover] Caesar's Antlers
Brooks Hansen
FSG/Sunburst hard cover
This looks like a rather charming animal fable staring a Norwegian reindeer named Caesar, who reluctantly submits to having three sparrows build a nest in his antlers as they search for their missing mate and father. As winter deepens their search seems hopeless, but with the help of a little magic the family may yet be re-united... even though the object of their search is a continent away. Hansen is also the author of The Chess Garden.

The Shadow of Ararat (Oath of Empire, Book I)
Thomas Harlan
Tor (hardcover, 480 pages, $26.95 US)
Publication date: July, 1999

Opening novel in a four-volume epic of war between the Roman Empire and Persia, from a new author. "In what would be A.D. 600 in our history, the Roman Empire still stands, supported by the twin pillars of the Legions and Thaumaturges of Rome. Now the Emperor of the West, the Augustus Galen Atreus, will come to the aid of the Emperor of the East, the Augustus Heraclius, to lift the siege of Constantinople and carry a great war to the very doorstep of the Shahanshah of Persia. It is a war that will be fought with armies both conventional and magical, with bright swords and the darkest necromantic sorceries. From the Eternal City to the deserts of Syria, from the ancient temples of the Egyptian gods to the home of the sacred flame of Ahura-Mazda, we are swept away on a grand and absorbing fantasy adventure."

Mars Underground
William K. Hartmann
Tor (reprint, paperback, 428 pages, $6.99/$8.99 Can)
Publication date: February, 1999 (First Edition: July, 1997)

A rather timely novel of near-future Mars colonization. When a famous biologist and diehard stationed at an international Mars research station -- the man who's lived on the red planet longer than any other -- disappears in the Martian desert, it's cause enough for alarm. But the mystery of his disappearance soon gives way to a much greater puzzle: evidence that humanity is not the first sentient race to set foot on Mars. "Captivating," says SF Site reviewer Marc Goldstein. "Hartmann describes the Martian environment with unique passion and telling detail. His passion for Mars spills over into his characters who, each in their own way, personify the hope that Mars offers for the future of humankind... an ambitious first novel. Hartman, obviously a student of science fiction, experiments with the genre, mixing in elements of romance, mystery, and political intrigue."
