Satisfaction guaranteed. Last Word Books & Press is an Infamous Independent Bookstore and Print Shop located in Olympia, Washington. . Good., University of Chicago Press, New York U. S. A.: Tor Books. As New 1991. Paperback. From Publishers Weekly Less a novel than a series of short stories and novelettes tied together by their subjects, this volume tells of 11 "immortals": individuals who will not die of old age but who can, however, be killed. Anderson ( The Avatar ) brings proven storytelling abilities and research skills to chronicles that range from 310 B. C. To a centuries-distant future. Many of the stories describe an immortal's first awareness of his or her difference, and flight from accusations of witchcraft; other tales relate chance encounters between immortals; a few simply tell a good yarn. The penultimate chapter tells of the eight survivors coming together in present times; the last portrays a future where science has extended everyone's life, creating a world vastly different from what the immortals had expected. BOMC and QPB selection. Copyright 1989 Reed. From Library Journal Hanno the navigator, Tu Shan the mystic, and Aliyat the courtesan share a common bond--immortality. Their search for others like themselves covers thousands of years of human history, from the earliest explorations of the world to the ultimate journey into the stars. Against an everchanging backdrop that includes medieval Japan, the court of Richelieu, and 19th-century America, Anderson draws together a group of very special heroes. Ambitious in scope, meticulous in detail, polished in style, the author's first novel in ten years is highly recommended. Copyright 1989 Reed. \nVoyaging from Phoenicia to the Stars. Feb 21, 2006 \nBy Maximiliano F Yofre "Maxi" (Buenos Aires, Argentina) - \n"The Boat of a Million Years " is one of the best novels written by Poul Anderson. \nIt is constructed as a series of short stories telling about immortal people (or almost immortal) . The different characters crisscross their ways along centuries and millennia. The outcomes of these encounters are sometimes friendly, sometimes antagonistic; never innocuous. \n\nPoul Anderson show his talent to mix action, drama and humor with deep meditations about meaning of life, ethics, gender conflict, ethnic discrimination and many subjects more. He includes accurate different historical backgrounds for each episode ranging from ancient Greece thru far future. \n\nThe story is great; it mainly follows Phoenician seaman Hanno in his eternal quest to find more people like him. He is very special. He never get sick or old, his teeth grows up again when he loose one, he recover very quickly from injuries. \nHe soon discover that his bless is also his curse. He remains unchanged yet consorts and descents grow old, die and vanish. Neighbors usually react violently to his "witchery" blaming him to practice strange deals with demons. \nTo evade these circumstances Hanno becomes a master in changing personalities and evading suspicion. \nThe narrative starts to catch momentum and conclude with a very interesting piece situated in a far future full of new possibilities. \n\nTake a joyful romp thru it, you won't be disappointed! ; 6.7 x 4.1 x 1.6 inches; 530 pages; From Publishers Weekly Less a novel than a series of short stories and novelettes tied together by their subjects, this volume tells of 11 "immortals": individuals who will not die of old age but who can, however, be killed.
