SUMMARY Glory By Alfred Coppel

READ Â Glory By Alfred Coppel E ruler Ian Voerster and his wife are locked in a struggle over their sick daughter whose heart condition will kill her without the advanced medicine of Glory Filled with action and memorable characters Glory is a triumph a far future epic of humanity in space to set beside the works of Poul Anderson and Gordon R Dicks. An interesting premise but not a great deal else Coppel establishes an intriguing setting effectively and somewhat laboriously in the future Earth s population crisis reaches a critical point of forcing a great deal of technology innovation so that humanity can colonize other planets The result is the Goldenwings large colony ships that travel at a high percentage of the speed of light by means of sailing the tachyon winds with vast stretches of skylar The Goldenwings are used successfully to transport colonists to dozens of worlds but the relativistic delays in communication mean that each world develops independently of the others Absent a population crisis on any of the worlds including the depopulated Earth technology stagnates Thousands of years pass and the fleet of Goldenwings slowly dwindles until only a few are still in operation running trading missions between worlds Such a one is Glory crewed by a half dozen or so Goldenwing syndicate members whose only family is the rest of the crew In parallel with our learning all this stuff we are introduced to the planet Voerster which was colonized a thousand years ago by refugees fleeing South Africa so as to keep their way of life read Apartheid alive Nine hundred years ago the population of black settlers enraged at their uneual yoke rose up in rebellion and the planet s population was almost entirely destroyed The survivors apartheid still intact have been holding onto senseless traditions and shunning technology ever since barely eking out a living on this foreign world the native animal species are all necrogenes meaning that like the phoenix offspring are born from the death of the mother This makes for a very delicately balanced ecosystem that cannot support the wild increase of human population In order to survive some of the initial colonists were also genetically engineered to survive on the several miles high plateau on the main continent in order to mine necessary minerals there These three populations blacks whites and the brutal high plateau people all exist in uneasy peace On Voerster we follow the ruling family royalty in all but name as they prepare for the delivery of Earth livestock that was ordered delivered by Goldenwing three generations earlierWe follow these two groups the bigots on Voerster and the crew of Glory for hundreds of pages before they actually interact with one another The build up for the arrival of the spaceship is excruciatingly drawn out Coppel seems to have fashioned a detailed science fiction universe and he s not content with using those details to inform his plot he actually has to tell us all about all the characters backgrounds and all the history of the planet and the Goldenwings and the planets from which each crew member came originally It s interesting stuff but the plotting is plodding and to make matters worse when the actual confrontation happens it is resolved in perhaps a dozen pages making the actual conflict of the story feel like a denouement It s calculated to leave the reader wanting and not surprisingly Coppel has at least two other books in a series of books about Glory and the universe it inhabitsThe world building is interesting and Coppel s ability to make us care about characters even characters who are bigots like the Voersters is effective though a bit ham fisted we readers are told repeatedly how wonderful the Voerster s wife Elianna is both by telling it directly by the narrator and by showing how characters fall all over themselves to please her yet we never see her do or say anything particularly of note But by the time there is conflict the reader is solidly rooting for her The book is OK but it doesn t make me want to rush out and read the next one despite what the author s intentions may have been I might read the seuels someday and the details about the setting are well thought out enough that I might re read Glory somedayjust not anytime soon
