No matter what else you may have read or heard, THE STARS MY DESTINATION is THE
greatest Science Fiction novel ever.
Better than anything Phillip K. Dick
ever produced, and that is an incredibly hard thing to say, cause Phillip K. was a genius.
Imagine a combination of Robert E. Howard, Philip K. Dick and Mickey Spillane and you'll know just how hard this story hits you...right between the eyes!
It's not much to say, but it is greater than any Science Fiction film so far...and I don't care what your favorite is "ALIENS" any "STAR TREK or STAR WARS", including "TREK 2 or EMPIRE"-"E.T.", "CLOSE ENCOUNTERS" "INDEPENDENCE DAY", etc.
Alfred Bester was the perfect writer.
He wrote the great GREEN LANTERN oath:
"IN THE BRIGHTEST DAY,
IN THE BLACKEST NIGHT,
NO EVIL SHALL ESCAPE MY SIGHT..."
To this day, THE GREEN LANTERNS are the only heroes in ANY Universe with
such an oath and such a clearly defined mission, to fight evil.
Not crime, evil. And to do so without fear.
Bester wrote for every medium.
You will also love "THE DEMOLISHED
MAN". Please seek out his work.
You will be solidly entertained AND deeply moved.
