The Haunted Stars: Interstellar Patrol, Book 4 | [Edmond Hamilton]

The Haunted Stars: Interstellar Patrol, Book 4

It meant little to young Robert Fairlie, a serious and dedicated philologist, that in this year 1966 the United States and Soviet Russia were contentious about the Moon. He had little interest in the first two rocket landings on the moon, and the bases that the two nations had built there. He knew nothing at all of the shattering discovery that the Americans had made there.

Publisher's Summary

It meant little to young Robert Fairlie, a serious and dedicated philologist, that in this year 1966 the United States and Soviet Russia were contentious about the Moon. He had little interest in the first two rocket landings on the moon, and the bases that the two nations had built there. He knew nothing at all of the shattering discovery that the Americans had made there.

For what had been found was of such explosive potentialities that it had to be kept top-secret - the discovery that space had already been conquered long ago by races who had once spanned the stars. So that men who had expected to spend decades in reaching the nearest planet, found suddenly in their hands the way to the wider universe.

Fairlie, drawn unexpectedly because of his special knowledge into this greatest of secrets, finds that a guarded New Mexico rocket-base is only the first step of the way. That way leads out amid the unexplored stars to the lost heartworld of those space-conquerors of long ago. And it leads Fairlie and others into the appalling reality of stellar space still haunted by the past cosmic struggle whose scale in space and time dwarfs the rivalries of tiny Earth's quarreling nations.

    "A compelling, well-written story from a SF master"

    Having discovered Edmond Hamilton's wonderful novel "The City at World's End," I decided to give his other works a try. "The Haunted Stars" is considered one of his best novels, and I was not disappointed. The story revolves around the discovery on the moon of hard evidence of an extraterrestrial civilization that may have had a hand in the shaping of human society. It's engaging and well written, although the ending is somewhat abrupt and unsatisfying. Overall, a worthwhile investment of one's time.
