Reviews - What do customers think about Last Enemy (Large Print)?

Free SF Reader  Sep 4, 2007
Dalla Hadron has been doing a little bit more scientific meddling than she should. As such, she has blown a fair holes in a certain society's theory of Statistical Reincarnation. i.e. that it all balances out in the end.

Given that this culture has a Society of Assassins as part of normal business practices she has a few problems.

Luckily Verkon Vall comes back, and is pretty handy with the old weapons himself.

Politics and action, quite entertaining.

Exciting and yet philosophically interesting  Aug 31, 2007
Hadron Dalla, once (and future!) wife of Verkan Vall, has gone to the Akor-Neb alternate reality sector to study their breakthroughs in studying reincarnation. However, with her superior knowledge of medicines and hypnosis from other sectors of the multiverse, she has produced a colossal breakthrough. Cause for celebration, no? No. Dalla has now completely thrown the Akor-Neb view of reality out the airlock, and civil war is right around the corner. Now, it is up to Vall to rescue Dalla and keep the Paratime secret safe.

This story was first published in Astounding Science Fiction (Vol. XLV, No. 6), in August of 1950. Like all of H. Beam Piper's (1904-64) Paratime stories, it is exciting and filled with adventure, and yet is philosophically interesting with Piper's trademark self-reliant man. Also, as always, the author was an expert at creating fascinating milieus that give the story so much interest. Overall, I found this to be a great story, one that is sure to please any fan of great science-fiction.
The Politics of Reincarnation  Jul 20, 2007
With the transition of much of H. Beam Piper's work into the public domain publishers like Aegypan Press have finally begun to bring Piper's work back into print and for that fans of Piper owe them a debt of gratitude. This short novel is an interesting introduction to Piper's Paratime series. It concerns an alternate world where people believe in reincarnation. The discovery that a "discarnate" individual has control over the time and place of his reincarnation leads to political turmoil, putting an undercover Paratime researcher in jeopardy. The hero of Piper's Paratime series, Paratime Policeman Verkan Vall, must step in to save the imperiled researcher--who just happens to be his ex-wife! The action is non-stop as hired assassins on all sides battle it out, fearless in their confidence that they will be reincarnated.

Other recommend works in Piper's Paratime series are the short novel Time Crime, the collection Paratime edited by John F. Carr, Piper's only full-length Paratime novel Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen, and its authorized sequels Great Kings' War, Kalvan Kingmaker, and Siege of Tarr-Hostigos by Carr and Roland Green.
