    One thought on “The Warriors of Spider

    1. Jefferson

      Another book from my book club that I would not have chosen to read myself, but I liked it well enough. What's interesting about this book is the marriage of two very different genres: Old West "Cowboys and Indians" (or maybe just historical fiction about Native Americans) and Space Opera.Humans have left Earth and formed an advanced civilization (The Directorate) colonizing the galaxy, ruled by genetically modified human super-computers. The Directors maintain a status-quo based on minimizing r [...]

      The warriors of the Spider, W. Michael GearReview: I am starting to wonder about W. Michael Gear's prophetic ability, again I find one of his books to elaborate on a something that is happening or has happened in society or history. The warriors of the spider refer to the theory of entropy (S = k * Log W) by Ludwig Eduard Boltzmann, how the world or god (spider) takes order and bring it to chaos.

What happens when this world of weak and obedient cross paths with the [...]

      Sci-fi but a large component of the story is based on the author's meandering into alternate religion/omnipotent being musings. Interesting on both fronts. Many strong female characters for the female sci-fi readers out there.

    5. Jeff

      Interesting blend of science, fiction and anthropology--not a too far fetched premise. Liked the characters, dissapointing ending.

    6. Daniel

      Warriors from another planet demonstrate how decadent a high-tech society has become. You've got action, sex, and scalping in this book, and it's all entertaining.
