liked itback in the 70s when it was writtensomehow it feltdated than it really wasAlthough after reading several Varley books, maybe I just don t care for his writing stylesince many seem to love him Lilo Alexandr Calypso is your typical mad scientist on the moon, of the female persuasion, doing illegal human genetic research, that it s proscribed by the state, doesn t bother her one bit What annoys Lilo a great deal though, is the death sentence after being arrested and found guilty by the strict court Set in the far future , when Earthlings have lost the Earth , to powerful, ruthless, alien invaders The little left of the human race is scattered all around the solar system, from Mercur Lilo Alexandr Calypso is your typical mad scientist on the moon, of the female persuasion, doing illegal human genetic research, that it s proscribed by the state, doesn t bother her one bit What annoys Lilo a great deal though, is the death sentence after being arrested and found guilty by the strict court Set in the far future , when Earthlings have lost the Earth , to powerful, ruthless, alien invaders The little left of the human race is scattered all around the solar system, from Mercury to Pluto, and even their inhospitable satellites Just in the nick of time , she s rescued by the Free Earthers, they substitute Lilo with her clone, in the bleak death house These fanatics need her to help them recover the blue planet, a hopeless, long sought dream Poor Calypso has really bad luck, getting killed often, including the original and being resurrected in new clone bodies, quite confusing to say the least At one time there are three versions of Lilo running around in various planets , spaceships and moons One of the trio even falls into Jupiter s enormous, lethal atmosphere, although dazzling, not a happy situation, however a wonderful, breathtaking ride while it lasts The Free Earth people are led by I kid you not, a man or is it a woman Who dresses , talks, behaves and looks like the notorious 19th century New York City corrupt politician, Boss Tweed, he has many schemes to defeat the invaders and return to Terra Guess nobody reads history books any, change that to e books Tweed a former president of Luna, with a secret base deep inside a Jovian moon, Poseidon, but not for long Lilo sent there, wants to leave the depressing place quickly , and with the help of her new, good friends, somehow sends this satellite at the near speed of light towards Alpha Centauri, the nearest star to our Sun Maybe Calypso will see her two wandering sisters thereif alive By the way Ophiuchi is pronounced, off e yoo ki assuming you re interested Good Aliens , the Ophiuchi Hotline, has sent four hundred years of messages from distant, remote space , helping mankind s technology progress rapidly Now they want the bill paid A surprisingly entertaining space opera for people who like this type of thing, not as weird as when this was written over forty years ago does this tell us something about today s present, crazy world After I finished the Gaia trilogy, I knew I had to keep going through all of John Varley s work It s not a compulsion It s a necessity for the sake of my love of SF.John Varley is one of the most impressive authors of the field I ve had the pleasure to experience The imagination and the devotion to pushing all those envelopes is the key to my love This one starts out noir with cloning goodness, moves on pretty quickly to the fate of the Earth and how it had been invaded, very successfully, After I finished the Gaia trilogy, I knew I had to keep going through all of John Varley s work It s not a compulsion It s a necessity for the sake of my love of SF.John Varley is one of the most impressive authors of the field I ve had the pleasure to experience The imagination and the devotion to pushing all those envelopes is the key to my love This one starts out noir with cloning goodness, moves on pretty quickly to the fate of the Earth and how it had been invaded, very successfully, to save the fishes and to oust the rest of humanity as lower life forms If the intrigue to Free Earth hadn t been enough, there was the whole business about the message being transmitted just outside of the reach of the inner system, the one letting us know that the bill has come due for the instantaneous communication technology we d been using for the last five hundred years.Ooops.I guess it s time to figure out if humanity is doomed two times over Maybe it sounds like a joke, but it s hardly anything like a joke The telling of it is all adventure, immortality, corruption, intrigue, and pure imagination through and through The joy is really in the execution.And the ending Wow Like, totally wow This is easily one of the very best Hard SF novels I ve ever read It s right up there with anything I can think of It explores time, memory, and even the social aspects of what alien races might think or do and how they could relate to any other species.I m tempted to rank it right up there on the same level as Cixin Liu s latest English translated trilogy starting with Three Body Problem and ending with Death s End, and I haven t even read Varley s subsequent novels You can guess that I ll be picking up books two and three very soon This is on another level compared to most modern SF Let s just call it an undisputed classic 77 and timeless Weird book Opiuchi Hotline by John Varley, the author of the Gaian trilogy, is about a lot of stuff and all rolled up into a hard sci fi, Bradburyan fantasy mix I guess if I had to break it down and slap a label on it, I would say this is a first contact story, though a very original one This is a difficult book to review, it was kind of hard to follow, and yet, strangely compelling, like Dane Cook narrating a children s book contextually OK, but edgy and not just a little disconcerting Weird book Opiuchi Hotline by John Varley, the author of the Gaian

not just a little disconcerting Varley describes a quirky, but brutal social order where Earth had been invaded centuries before and humans were denigrated to second class status amongst aliens and even Earthlings, as aquatic mammals were consideredadvanced So Long and Thanks for All the Fish.Most interesting, Varley anticipates the writing of William Gibson in Neuromancer and the bio punk sub genre Hotline exhibits bioengineering and manipulation, cosmetic sex changes, overlapping multi level cloning with memory recording and nanotechnology This is also reminiscent of Joe Haldeman s work in All My Sins Remembered also published in 1977 and There Is No Darkness published 1983 and the similarity in these works and the closeness in time suggest a collective literary movement in this direction
