The Devil on Salvation Bluff | [Jack Vance]

The Devil on Salvation Bluff

On the planet Glory, missionaries live in a constant unpredictable environment. Sister Mary and her husband, Brother Raymond, try to contend with the flits, which live satyr-like existences. The missionaries are exasperated with this world's disregard for cause and effect. The only constant is the clock that they brought with them. And therein lies the problem.

    "Too Short, I lost a credit for this?"

    Don't bother. Like Vance, but not this. I thought it needed a lot more chapters.

    "Nothing unexpected"

    This was a nice listen but nothing unexpected in the plot or characters. I would recommend it to those who like to get hit over the head with a message that many of us have heard before about cultural differences.
