Demon Gaea 3 ☆ Titan Wizard and Demon have enthralled a generation of readers with adventure humor horror and dazzling imagination Now in the epic I read the first two books of John Varley’s magnificent Gaean trilogy Titan and Wizard when I was in high school back in the mid eighties and I really enjoyed them Somehow inexplicably I never read the third Demon When I began reading again in 2008 after graduating from law school and then especially when I connected with Goodreads in 2011 I remembered the trilogy and decided to finish what was startedDemon was first published in 1984 and completes the trilogy of humanity's encounter with a living being in the shape of a 1300 km diameter Stanford torus inhabited by many different species such as the centaur like Titanides living blimps iron masters and the god like insane entity known as Gaea in orbit around Saturn The protagonist of the trilogy is Cirocco Jones a charismatic but complex super hero who displays a dramatic counter figure to the deliberate antagonist of Gaea The real uality of the trilogy is Varley’s wonderfully imaginative uniuely original world building In contrast with the Tolkien inspired sub genre of fantasy series this is a decidedly American fantasy KINDLE ò Demon Gaea 3 Ù John Varley

John Varley Ù Demon Gaea 3 READER

John Varley Ù Demon Gaea 3 READER Conclusion of John Varley's masterpiece the satellite sized alien Gaea has gone completely insane She has trapped humans in her mind It strikes me as I finish up Demon that John Varley’s trilogy is in many ways a mirror image of Arthur Clarke’s 2001 a Space Odyssey While both stories begin with humans exploring alien technology in the outer solar system Clarke’s is all about the computers space travel and alien technology while Varley’s is all about human relationships Clarke’s aliens are aloof and cold leaving behind technology just in case humans manage to develop into something interesting; Varley’s Gaea is intensely interested in humans—luring them to her world sometimes with very convoluted methods and using their films to express her insanity in this final volume of the trilogyAbout mid book Conal a man from Earth with all of the prejudices associated and Nova a woman from a lesbian society on a human made satellite have an argumentdiscussion which I think articulates Varley’s view of things rather well Conal came from a society in which males were privileged and Nova came from one which demonizes men They are thrown into a situation where they will have to co operate and they must work out their differences and an interesting discussion on in groups and out groups ensues Conal realizes that Nova’s choice of wardrobe or lack thereof is really none of his business and shouldn’t affect how he relates to her and Nova realizes that you don’t have to be a lesbian female to be a worthy companion I re read this particular section 2 3 times just because I enjoyed it so much—it fit so well into the action without feeling overly preachy at least to meNeedless to say this whole series passes the Bechdel test with flying colours very refreshing in a works from the 1970s and 1980s The whole Gaean world with its odd plants and animals is interesting and fun to explore and has its own internal logic that made perfect sense to me as I read it despite its oddityBook 205 of my science fiction fantasy reading project
