BOOK REVIEW

JACK THE BODILESS by Julian May
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Jan. 22, 1992

"Okay for series fans, with well-handled operant ideas and an abundance of Remillards; but overlong, patchy, and frustratingly inconclusive for everyone else."

BOOK REVIEW

THE NOBLE PATH by Peter May
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 22, 1993

"May (The Man With No Face, 1981) gives his Mission: Impossible yarn the boost of sharp locations, passionate decrials of the world's indifference to the region's suffering, and a distinctly original handling of the genre's conventions."
Deadeyed British soldier-of-fortune Jack Elliot—hired in 1978 by wealthy Cambodian refugee Ang Yuon to retrieve the family he abandoned during the evacuation of Phnom Penh—runs into all the obstacles you'd expect, and then some. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

DIAMOND MASK by Julian May
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: March 28, 1994

"Again patchy and irritatingly inconclusive; but May handles both the psychic complications and the family interactions with pleasing skill, and the upshot is another probable crowd-pleaser- -though no place for newcomers to start."
Book two of May's Galactic Milieu trilogy (Jack the Bodiless, 1991) is a leisurely account of the events that led up to the Metapsychic Rebellion of 2083 and precipitated the action of May's previous tetralogy, the Saga of Pliocene Exile. Read full book review >
