by Alan Dean FOSTER


Chapter XV. A Biography of Alan Dean Foster. There was no point in re-checking the book, though. Company regs specifically forbade shooting a paying passenger, no matter how obnoxious.

Chapter XV. Book One of The Icerigger Trilogy. Other methods had so far met with abject failure.

Mission to Moulokin (1979) is a science fiction novel by American writer Alan Dean Foster. It is the second entry in Foster's Icerigger Trilogy and is a part of his ever-growing series of books taking place within his Humanx Commonwealth. The first book in the series is Icerigger, and the third is The Deluge Drivers

A good book, but not quite as good as the first. The humans haven't yet managed to leave Moulokin, and instead end up staying to assist the Tran, at least the ones they are friends with now. Читать весь отзыв.

For Ethan Frome Fortune and his musclebound sidekick Skua September, the frozen planet of Tran-ky-ky had become too much of a cold thing. Aboard their giant icerigger Slanderscree, they headed for the trading post of Brass Monkey to book a passage home. A good book, but not quite as good as the first.

PROLOGUE It all began with a bungled kidnapping. The two men who'd attempted to abduct the wealthy Hellespont du Kane and his daughter Colette from the KK-drive liner orbiting the ice world of Tran-ky-ky had been forced to take along two witnesses, a. diminutive schoolteacher named Milliken Williams and a salesman, Ethan Fortune.

Mission to Moulokin is the mildly entertaining 2nd book in the Tran-ky-ky ice world series that essentially completes the story arc begun in the 1st book. The writing seems to be aimed towards a middle school audience at best. I liked Foster's imagined frozen planet and its flora and fauna. Much weaker are his cardboard characters and his generally clueless "salesman" protagonist. There is minimal development of the secondary players.

Mission to Moulokin book. Foster tries to inject some character development with love interests (although he kills one love triangle only Alan Dean Foster must be more of an ideas man, because although an entertaining read, the writing in Mission to Moulokin did not live up to the plot. There are great concepts here just crying out to be expanded upon. yes, I know there's the final book in the trilogy I still need to read; however, the characters are two-dimensional and I didn't really feel any empathy for any of them.

There is optimism here, hope that good men (and Tran) can improve relations between Human Commonwealth and the planet named Tran-ky-ky. First, they must confederate other Tran city states, then find a way to communicate off-world. September and Ethan, introduced in Book 1, grow in complexity here. They become the action team, while Williams (still a cypher) is the scientific talent.
Foster continues to develop this world, the tectonics and islands protruding above the ice. The Tran are on the cusp of civilization, only needing means of communications to spread ideas from city to city. Along the way, they negotiate in good faith, fight when necessary, and develop new strengths. This is a good plot, posing problems for the trio and Tran allies to solve. Of course, traveling great distances takes time; certain sections cover weeks in a few sentences. The pacing is quick, writing has fewer mistakes than today's books.
It is dated- the book does not depend on internets, database hacks or nanobots. But there is swordplay, castle dungeons and travel by sail- and thereby the impact is great. Imagery is vivid enough to make you shudder after reading how the protagonists escape hungry carnivores.
The dramatic tension goes right up to the last chapter; it takes that long for some scores to settle.

Mission to Moulokin is the mildly entertaining 2nd book in the Tran-ky-ky ice world series that essentially completes the story arc begun in the 1st book. The writing seems to be aimed towards a middle school audience at best. I liked Foster's imagined frozen planet and its flora and fauna. Much weaker are his cardboard characters and his generally clueless "salesman" protagonist. There is minimal development of the secondary players. One of them, the former school teacher, seemed to have considerably more potential as principal protagonist.

The books are barely sci-fi; more fantasy/adventure I would file near A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court rather than Heinlein or Asimov's work.

Foster is a master sci-fi writer. He hits all the right notes in his narrative and doesn't miss a beat nor lull the story when other authors sometimes just add filler to thicken their books.

This is a second part to the Ice rigger trilogy where Ethan Fortune has gone native to help the natives grow up as a society, and become propper members of a nearly galactic wide community known as the Commonwealth.

Filled with colorful characters with a myriad of backgrounds, this book is guaranteed to delight and entertain the sci fi reader.

This is the 2nd book of the Icerigger Trilogy. Great sequel to Book 1, Icerigger, it continues the adventures of Ethan Fortune, Skua September, Williams, the Tran, et al. Though this series was published in the 70s, the themes of adventure, discovery, honor and chivalry are timeless. I have read and re-read this series countless times and will do so again in future. In fact, that's why I looked for the old hardcover edition. I had already worn down 2 copies each of the old paperbacks.
Set in Foster's Humanx Commonwealth, these series can stand alone or be read as part of the greater 'whole'; i.e. body of work. Aside from the Flinx and Pip series and Sentenced to Prism, probably part of my top 10 by this author.

hey it is back history on Skua September - and that feels like it should be required reading for AD Foster readers.

it is book 2 of the trilogy, (Icerigger is book 1) and wouldn't stand particularly well on its own if you started reading here.
reading is light an not terribly sophisticated, mentally challenging - but I wasn't looking for that... just a light read.
some parts of the book are predictable (duh) but there's stuff going on - plot sputters in places but never runs totally out of gas.

this is no Flinx&Pip series book but its nowhere near that dismal literary wreck: Bloodhype.

I love this entire series. Amid a more than Antarctic climate, five humans take on a world. Foster is one of my favorite authors and he has lots of practice making very believable worlds and characters.
