It's obvious that Cletus Graeme-limping, mild-mannered scholarly-doesn't belong on a battling field, but instead at a desk working on his fourth book on battle strategy and tactics. But Bakhalla has more battlefields than libraries, and Graeme sees his small force of Dorsai-soldiers of fortune-as the perfect opportunity to test his theories.

Earth, Lord," answered Kyle. Kyle picked up the reins of the stallion and the two horses with their riders moved off across the slope.

This book will absolutely envelope you with it's sense of place (Canadian wilderness), excellent writing, and just plain good story. I've read thousands of novels, but this is truly one of the few books that I didn't put down; I read it all in one sitting! Well worth the used price, as it's out of print new. THE EARTH LORDS is tie with Raymond Feist's FAERIE TALE for best fantasy book of all time. Reserve your copy before they're gone for good.

Earth Lords - Gordon R. Dickson - [SF - Novel - 0592 - Feb 19 2015]

Over the years I have read approximately 20 novels by noted Canadian science fiction/fantasy author Gordon R. Dickson (1923-2001). Dickson was a prolific novelist - the ISFDB (Internet Science Fiction Data Base) list an impressive 56 novels - and in my opinion his stories were expertly plotted, highly imaginative and competently reasoned.

"Earth Lords"(1989) is a unusual story that combines strong elements of a historical novel - political intrigues in turn of the 20th Century Canada - and a fantastic science-fiction story of a race of advanced humanoid beings who live in underground caverns and are bent on wiping out all above ground mankind. Well, that's a one-sentence plot description and I agree it sounds quite strange. Dickson makes a valiant effort to infuse creditability into this incredible sounding story without turning it into a literary embarrassment. In my opinion he has succeeded in this off beat but entertaining story. Interestingly there is only one edition of this book - the 1989 Ace paperback so if you are interested you will have to search the internet to find a copy.

Reflecting back on the concluding chapter of this story and the several unresolved plot threads left hanging I was greatly surprised there was no Book 2. Nonetheless readers will, I believe, enjoy the book as written and hopefully read other penned by this very talented and underrated author.

Gordon Dickson's Earth Lords, as with most great Science Fiction, actually a book about now. His depiction of an alienated and discriminated against group plotting revenge against the world that made them outcasts should strike a chord with everyone who reads it. In addition, the characterisation, plot and prose are excellent, this is an 'easy' read, the pages turn quickly and the story envelopes you with ease. What it isn't is easy thinking. A book well worth seeking out.
