Hugo Award finalist and Robert A. Heinlein Award-winning SF
writer Michael Flynn now turns to space opera in "The January
Dancer, " with stunningly successful results."" Full of rich echoes
of the space opera classics from Doc Smith to Cordwainer Smith, it
tells the fateful story of an ancient pre-human artifact of great
power, and the people who found it. Starting with Captain Amos
January, who quickly loses it, and then the others who fought,
schemed, and killed to get it, we travel around the complex,
decadent, brawling, mongrelized interstellar human civilization it
might save or destroy, following the searchers for it. Collectors
want the Dancer; pirates take it; rulers crave it, and they'll all
kill if necessary to get it. This is as thrilling a yarn as any
ever in the whole history of SF. This is a story of love,
revolution, music, and mystery, and ends, as all great stories do,
with shock and a beginning.
