Sinossi

FUZZY ERGO SUM by Wolfgang Diehr is the first new Fuzzy novel in almost 30 years. This new 2nd Edition continues H. Beam Piper's most well-known and beloved series, featuring Jack Holloway, Little Fuzzy, Victor Grego, et al. who all return in this new continuation of Piper's original novel, Little Fuzzy. Things have been quiet on Zarathustra-maybe too quiet-for the Colonial Government, Jack Holloway, the Fuzzies and the Charterless Zarathustra Company for the last couple of years. Baby Fuzzy made his first kill, the sunstone agreement with the CZC has kept the planetary government in the black and the Fuzzies and humans peacefully co-exist in a nearly symbiotic relationship.

All is well until several men arrive on Zarathustra with an agenda that will spell trouble for humans and Fuzzies alike. In a very short period, the Chief Colonial Prosecutor is abducted, a dangerous criminal escapes from prison and a major stockholder with a blood vendetta digs into the company's records

5.0 su 5 stelle The Fuzzies Live! 22 gennaio 2012
Di beta - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida|Acquisto verificato
Little Fuzzy was one of my all time favorite books, a fully fleshed world of explorers, prospectors, scientists, soldiers, policemen, government workers, and company people.

It was a fresh new colony planet, lots of room to spread out in, and a real colonial spirit of adventure.

Then a lone prospector came home one day and found a Fuzzy in his shower stall. And the whole world changed. One small, funloving furry humanoid, with golden fur and an insatiable curiosity became the universe's newest recognized sapient race.

But not without problems. The Company that owned the planet only owned it if it wasn't inhabited by an indigenous sapient species, and the race was on. Who would win, a planetwide, multi-million dollar corporate empire, or a cantankerous old gunfighter and his family of cute little critters?

A moral dilemma, loads of fantastic characters, and a world that feels like a real place, all populated with Fuzzies that just want to "make friends."

History was made with the publication of "Little Fuzzy." Followed up by its sequels, "Fuzzy Sapiens" and "Fuzzies and Other People" all written by H. Beam Piper. (Two other sequels by other authors were later written after the author's death, Fuzzy Bones, and Golden Dream: A Fuzzy Odyssey. And recently a "reboot" novel that rewrites the original novel "Little Fuzzy" as "Fuzzy Nation.")

Fuzzy Ergo Sum is the latest of the Fuzzy novels, and it follows on directly from the events of Piper's last original novel "Fuzzies and Other People."

Wolfgang Diehr has managed to capture Piper's voice and feel for the planet Zarathustra (the world of the Fuzzies) with all its complexities and frontier fun. Of all the Fuzzy sequels, (and I've read all the fuzzy novels) this is the one that most reflects H. Beam Piper's original vision and voice.

This hardback from Pequod Press is a quality hardback novel, with a tight binding, crisp cleancut pages and beautiful cover artwork, this is a library quality book, one meant to be read over and over for many years of enjoyment.

It's hard to review the story, because I don't want to give away any of the surprises. There is one central mystery that keeps you guessing then leaves you floored at the end. (Two actually.) But the story starts with a collection of visitors arriving on Zarathustra, a multi-millionaire major stockholder in the Charterless Zarathustra Company has come looking for something, and he's not unwilling to throw around his weight to find it.

A group of illegal sunstone miners have set up a camouflaged camp at the northern end of the Fuzzy Reservation, but they're getting their orders from someone else.

A pair of bounty hunters have shown up to kidnap Gus Brannhard, the current Chief Prosecutor of Zarathustra, and defender of the Fuzzies.

A group of criminals led by a mystery figure is shaking up the Mallorysport criminal underground, the heads of the crime syndicates have never quite recovered from their involvement with the Fuzzy Faginy ring that trained a group of Fuzzies to break into the Company sunstone vault. And the new crime ring intends to break Leo Thaxter, one of the faginy ring, out of prison.

Now all these various threads are starting to come together, and in the meantime life has moved on on Zarathustra, the Fuzzies are learning more and more from their human Big Ones, and when Gus goes missing, troops of Fuzzy rescuers head out mounted on dogs to scour the reservation for him. (When I first saw the cover, "What? Fuzzies riding dogs?" I thought it was strange, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense.)

The conclusion of this book left me breathless, and I sincerely hope there is a sequel in the works.

This is a book that H. Beam Piper would be proud of. And if you love Fuzzies, this is a book you definitely need to read. (I paid the full, hardcover price for this, but it was definitely worth it.)

[And, no, for any cynics out there, I'm not affiliated with the publisher or author, I'm not praising this for them. I'm praising this as a reader of the Fuzzy novels who was very excited to see a new book come out. And who was very satisfied with the results. I only finished reading it a half hour ago. And now I realize I don't have any book shelves undusty enough to keep it on. This is one of those books that makes me wish I had a nice home library, someplace dignified where I could keep it until I want to read it again.]

And if the author is reading this. Please write a sequel. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Di Matthew Higgins - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina rigida
This book is a great follow-up to the three H. Beam Piper Fuzzy novels.Complete Fuzzy Diehr gets the appeal of reading Piper's Fuzzy books and keeps his sequel in line with that spirit. Hopefully Diehr will continue the series onward from here!

5.0 su 5 stelle What a pleasant surprise! 4 giugno 2014
Di Ye Olde Batte - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

As a great lover of Piper's original "Fuzzy" works, and having been much impressed by Bill Tuning's and Ardath Mayhar's correlative works, I react with great enthusiasm toward any additions to "Fuzzy-based" literature. That being said, I had quite recently been appalled by that travesty on Piper's original Little Fuzzy book , John Scalzi's abominable Fuzzy Nation, in which all the well-known and beloved characters except Jack Holloway (including the original Fuzzies) are replaced by poorly reimagined and renamed personae, and Jack himself reverts from a thoughtful individualist and elder statesman to a hunky, brainless space marine. Under these circumstances, I was ready to read Diehr, but with an industrial-sized alt shaker at my elbow. What a peasant surprise! Diehr has apparently read and loved both the Piper originals and the good, representative spin-offs, and he continues the story in the same vein. The appearance and revelation of the identity of John Morgan is reminiscent of a similar situation in Ellis Peters's beloved "Brother Cadfael" mysteries. And, in addition to the high-quality plot and character development, the actual writing is almost (admittedly not quite) on a par with Piper's own. I caught a couple of grammatical clunkers in Tuning's offering, but none in Diehr's. Hurrah for a viable continuation of a beloved literary thread!

4.0 su 5 stelle Channeling HB Piper - Fuzzys are back! 18 aprile 2014
Di Failure Analyst - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Wolfgang Diehr has found and channeled the lost voice of the late H Beam Piper. This book sounds and feels just like Piper would have written it, and I was delighted to be immersed in a fresh adventure into Pipers' world again. Even the random technicolor 'explosion' of asterisks when the communications screens change connections was in there. Minor gripes include several misspellings in my e-book edition, and maybe a little too much action all going at once. The writing feels like a 'juvinile' book - but Piper wrote the Fuzzy stories as a juvinile series, and I found it very readable as an adult.

I was warned that there was a cliffhanger ending to this book, and there sure could have been a juicy one - BUT it may have been edited out in a Kindle revision, In any case, the ending as I read it (Spring 2014) was quite satisfying, with just enough stuff left undone to properly lure you into the next book.

Return to Zarathrustra maybe two T-years after the events of Fuzzy Sapiens. Jack Holloway is still the Native Commissioner, and the Fuzzy reservation ("the Rez") at what used to be Holloway's Camp has grown to the point where personal sanitation has become a practical problem. Jack's friend, Fuzzy admierer, and Charterless Zarathrustra Company CEO Victor Grego has a fix for that: the "Fuzzy Flush". So-called "giant Fuzzy", Chief Prosecutor Gus Brannhard, has just undergone a liver replacement; surprisingly, this was not due to his heavy drinking ruining the old one, but instead due to the presence of a piece of shrapnel that was left in it from some mysterious past event that Brannhard doen't want to talk about. His new liver needs time without alcohol to settle in though, and Gus's Fuzzys are not about to let him sneak in the 'little drink' that he craves. Much against his nature, Gus is drying out.

A new major character arrives on planet: John Morgan, late of Freya. A major stockholder in the CZC, he asks for and gets access to CZC records and begins an industrious research project. That worries Grego, who takes some measures to monitor Morgan's activities and analyze just what it is he is trying to find out from those records. He seems to be looking for somebody.

The criminal elements in Junk Town are also active, and have nefarious schemes afoot...

Truly a good and satisfying read, even via Kindle on my smartphone screen (which worked very well, btw). I strongly recommend it if you liked the old Fuzzy series!

Great book . Wish there were 8 stars to use. thank you for continuing Mr Piper's work and doing so extremely well. You managed to not only capture the bulk of the story but also the flavor of H. Beam Piper's work. I feel like that little boy in Oliver asking for more------please???? bill Hodges
