HASH(0xa25de6e4) out of 5 stars Dominic Flandry - The First Three Books, Terran Empire - The First Four Books March 6 2016
By Harold M. Curtis - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Imperial Stars (2000) collects the first four books in the Terran Empire era, three featuring Dominic Flandry, a swashbuckling intersteller agent/diplomat who has a lot in common with Jaime Retief. The books were originally published as 1) Ensign Flandry (1966), A Circus Of Hells (1970), The Rebel Worlds (1969), and The Day Of Their Return (1973)(not Flandry).

In a burst of OCD, I decided to read the entire Terran Empire series in chronological order, and not start on it until I had copies of all of them. Depending on what editions can be found, there are 19 or 20 or so books covering the eras of: the Psychotechnic League; the Polesotechnic League; the Terran Empire; and the Long Night.

I think reading straight through the whole series was a mistake. It would have been all right a little at a time. It isn’t what one might call ‘fast paced’. Poul Anderson’s effusive descriptive imagery is like a combination of Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway – if they had been Vikings! Sometimes I did think I was reading a Norse epic saga set on another planet. I mean, his scene setting is incredible – you would easily be able to paint a portrait of each character, including the background down to individual bushes, trees, mountains, and clothes that they were wearing – but I found myself skimming at times.

And, of course, the style is uneven, since the series was written out of chronological order over 4 decades.

If you decide to commit to this author and this series, or just this book, I highly advise studying the Wikipedia entry on Poul Anderson first. There is much to like about Poul Anderson. (Your mileage may vary.)
