    MOBI The Dark Light Years Epub ☆ The Dark ePUB Ý ↠ posthd.pro ↠ dark epub, light download, years epub, The Dark kindle, The Dark Light Years ePUBThe Dark Light Years by Brian Aldiss first published in 1964 makes me realize what an important voice Aldiss is in the science fiction genreAs I write this in May 2015 Mr Aldiss is 89 years old and still writing Named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America in 2000 and inducted by the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2004 he has received two Hugo Awards one Nebula Award and one John W Campbell Memorial AwardThe Dark Light Years somewhat dated by today’s tech heavy literary standards describes a first contact scenario where the peaceful and philosophical alien Utods dubbed “rhino men” by unsophisticated spacers – because of their bulk and slovenly behavior though Aldiss’ description seems akin to a terrestrial hippopotamus – make an important distinction from the warlike and destructive

    MOBI The Dark Light Years Epub ☆ The Dark ePUB Ý ↠ posthd.pro ↠ dark epub, light download, years epub, The Dark kindle, The Dark Light Years ePUB40 to 45 stars Another excellent science fiction novel by Mr Aldiss Better than Non Stop but not as good as Hothouse my favorite Aldiss novel this is a darkly humorous and satirical look at the darker side of humanity and horribly we get it wrong when we come across a peaceful alien species that evolved differently from us Smart well written at times funny and leaves you with much to think about Highly Recommended

    MOBI The Dark Light Years Epub ☆ The Dark ePUB Ý ↠ posthd.pro ↠ dark epub, light download, years epub, The Dark kindle, The Dark Light Years ePUBCivilization is a distance the man has placed between him and his excreta What an idea though of course not without its limitations Conceptually this is precisely the sort of scifi I enjoy The sort that uses fictional constructs to address serious topics The sort that uses aliens to talk about humanity In this case the fictional construct is an alien race found and found offensive by earth explorers Offense in the form of not subscribing to standard humanoid measures of hygiene It matters not of course that Utods are in fact a sophisticated race with advanced technology and philosophy the men confined by their impregnable anthropomorphism and galvanized by narrow minded prejudice see their wallowing in mud habit and their excretions as appalling thus rendering the

    MOBI The Dark Light Years Epub ☆ The Dark ePUB Ý ↠ posthd.pro ↠ dark epub, light download, years epub, The Dark kindle, The Dark Light Years ePUBBrian Aldiss loved challenging the basic assumptions of Western civilisation Here it's cleanliness Most SF writers it for granted that beings from any advanced culture will keep themselves clean and neat So Aldiss introduces the Utods who are sophisticated enough to have invented interstellar travel but look vaguely like hippopotami and spend their time wallowing in their own dung The idea's nice and the ending is effective and generates suitable outrage but unfortunately the rest of the book doesn't uite live

    MOBI The Dark Light Years Epub ☆ The Dark ePUB Ý ↠ posthd.pro ↠ dark epub, light download, years epub, The Dark kindle, The Dark Light Years ePUBWhoa This is my first Aldiss As it starts this book is a little frustrating but pretty irresistible eventually the frustrations are revealed to have been an ingenious device Aldiss is really good at keeping his skepticism about our present civilization just barely visible likewise having the unfortunate aspects of his characters' personalities slip out briefly almost accidentally just enough to be damning without bludgeoning us with them Attention to detail really pays dividends here will rapidly convince you that Mr Aldiss has brilliant foresight restraint Even once I'd sussed out just how deviously clever the author really was the emotional impact of the ending still felt like being caught in an ambush I will absolutely be reading books by this man soon
