Présentation de l'éditeur

A Note From The Author: Recently I have been experimenting with pricing to judge the effect on sales for all of my books. I am using ANTARES DAWN as a loss/leader to encourage people who have not read me before to give my books a try. If you like technologically sophisticated science fiction, you will probably like the way I write. A warning: DAWN is the book most likely to sink its hooks deeply into new readers who enjoy reading what I enjoy reading. Once you've read it, you may end up buying all of my books. Proceed at your own risk! (Tempe, AZ, February 26, 2012)

When the supergiant star Antares exploded in 2512, the human colony on Alta found their pathway to the stars gone, isolating them from the rest of human space for more than a century. Then one day, a powerful warship materialized in the system without warning. Alarmed by the sudden appearance of such behemoth, the commanders of the Altan Space Navy dispatched one of their most powerful ships to investigate. What ASNS Discovery finds when they finally catch the intruder is a battered hulk manned by a dead crew.
That is disturbing news for the Altans. For the dead battleship could easily have defeated the whole of the Altan navy. If it could find Alta, then so could whoever it was that beat it. Something would have to be done.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Neat concepts, fizzles out. 31 janvier 2013
Par Matt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I was pretty excited when I read the premise of this book; a colony is cut off from earth for over a hundred years when an unknown spaceship appears out of nowhere. The colonists decide to go figure out where it came from. It sounds like an interesting mystery with potential for some plot twists and thrilling events. Unfortunately nothing THAT interesting happens. The story alternates between being in space and people on planets talking politics. I started to skip through the long dialogues because they really didn't have to do with the plot. Of course there was a love story that was crammed in so that there could be a female character - because you can't have a female on a starship unless she's in love with the captain or something right?

It's clear that this was heavily influenced by "The Mote in God's Eye" which is both good and bad. You will roll your eyes at certain things. The reason I gave it 2 stars and not 1 is because it does have some very nice descriptions and plenty oftechnical/ hard scifi stuff.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Most scifi is dreadful... 17 août 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
...this isn't. McCollum has a knack of keeping the words out of the way of a good story. I put down most SciFi books in disgust after a few pages when they become too improbable or unintelligent or the quality of the writing is unbearable. But of all "regular" scifi I have enjoyed MacCollum's books the most, especially the Antares books. They are very easy to read, the science is almost always well worked out, and they are hard to put down. Don't expect super-deep character development, but the plots are fun and rattle along. The Antares books in particualar are the sort of books that you feel sad to finish. My favorite kind!
I just hope he sits down and writes a book the size of say, Lord of the Rings, so I can really get into one of these worlds for more than just a few days. Please please!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Off-World Sci-Fi 30 juin 1999
Par Mark Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
This isn't a review per se, just a kudo for the author: Michael McCollum does it again. I've read just about everything by this author and have determined that he's one of the very best sci-fi authors ever. I've read this book and its sequel three times now--about once every 6 months or so since finding them. This is the kind of story that stays with me and keeps drawing me back over and over--even tho I know what's gonna happen! The broad landscape of this story is absolutely entralling, the characters are well developed and really come alive, and the physics of wormhole travel even seems plausible. Please, please someone make a movie out of this story. It would translate MOST EXCELLENTLY to the big screen.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun to discover this series. 27 mai 2007

I heard about this series on the Podcast "Security Now" with Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte. The book was a fun read - I appreciate how scientifically based it was; each aspect of space flight seemed well thought out and quite plausible. The story is also interesting and characters are fairly well developed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An All-time Favorite 27 avril 2010
Par Dan Thompson - Publié sur Amazon.com
I read this book in it's original paperback release in 1986. It hooked me immediately and I've been a fan of McCollum ever since. It is a book that I can reread and have done so many times, along with it's sequel "Antares Passage." The only frustration was the lack of a conclusion to the story and that was finally provided in 2002. It was a long wait but worth it. As others have mentioned, the stories stick to real science as much as possible. There is no artificial gravity, the ships rotate to simulate it. The aliens are believable but different, as they should be. The human characters are well developed enough that we care about them.

I also highly recommend his other works, both the earlier ones like the Life Probe series and his latest, the Gibraltar Earth series. I just finished Gibraltar Stars (Gibraltar Trilogy, Volume 3) and enjoyed it thoroughly.
