A Book For the Ages

"The Warlock Wandering" is highly enjoyable and superb book that follows the journey of Rod Gallowglass, from "Warlock In Spite Of Himself," and his wife, Gwendolyn Gallowglass the most powerful witch in all of Gramarye, along with a friend from past novels. Only this time they are journeying not only far from their own world but far from their own time. It is fascinating to see how masterfully Christopher Stasheff integrates the worlds of science and magic together once again. This fusion of two worlds has existed in the past few novels in this series, but always with the man of science, Rod Gallowglass, learning to live within a world of magic. Now through his masterful story telling, Christopher Stasheff shows us how someone from his magical world Gramarye can or cannot adapt to a world of science, through Gwen. Once again Stasheff lends such life to his characters and the worlds he creates with such prowess that "The Warlock Wandering" is a book not to be missed. I highly recommend this book, even if it is the first in series you are to read. Even if it is your frist journey into the Warlock Series I have little doubt that you will fall in love with both Rod and Gwen desire to read the rest of the series.

Highly supurb and coherent science fantasy writing.

Many fantasy writers, even the science fantasy writers, often have difficulty keeping their character's personal histories coherent and consistent. That is absolutely NOT the case with Mr.Stasheff. He has written several books about the mythical and mystical High Warlock of Graymarye and has kept the storylines and the prior event principally intact. Such "historical" coherence is and intrinsic necessity for any type of science fiction writing and is especially needful in the science fantasy genre for the suspension of disbelief needed for enjoyment of a fantasy story. It is especially needful in the "science" fantasy stories because most of the readers presumably have something of a scientific background as a spring-board. His storylines and technical principals have always been very suprisingly delightful in this sense. I first encountered the concept of "molecular circuitry" in his books (years before Westinghouse awarded a student for an achievement that could be the first reality-based step in this direction). The problem with most science fiction nowadays is that it is very difficult to keep the "fictional" stories and devices ahead of the "realities" appearing in the daily newspapers and science journals while keeping the reading understandable and enjoyable. Christopher Stasheff consistently, sucessfully takes us on a journies to the next "frontier" of the Age of Science -- stories about the exciting technology and advancements of the human mind and spirit. His book, "The Warlock Wandering" is a prime example of all these features. Highlighting his command of the "coherence factor", its companion feature "The Warlock is Missing" (which really should be read second), helps to set a standard many other science fantasy writers will be hard pressed to compete with. Thank you for another delightfully enjoyable reading experience, Mr. Stasheff!!
