    Terre Nouvelle

    Terre Nouvelle is just about the best speculative fiction that I have read on GA; beautiful writing style, as elegant, confident and accomplished as are the main characters. It might be speculative, but it is also believable that a society, about 150 years ahead of us now, could settle a new world in space but then lose access to all its advanced technology following the massacre of all the adult males by an indigenous sentient species it is a wonderful conceit that, in the ensuing 888 years, the settler community had gradually advanced to the technical, social and political standards of the mid to late 19th century I really liked the supernatural aspect of the Great Mind that linked all sentient beings, human and beast and both living and dead If there was one aspect of the story I struggled with it was that the Patriarch was not the toxic religious leader of the present day, but was truly a leader dedicated to inculcating peace and harmony between competing societies. I hope this vision of a future world becomes true.
