5.0 étoiles sur 5Absolutely fantastic characters!28 décembre 1999

I picked up a copy of this in the early 80's and it is still one of my favorites! It's a shame this is out of print. So many people are going to miss the chance to read about Captian Pausart and his trials and tribulations while trying to get a bunch of young witches safely back to their home planet. I love the interplay between him and Goth, in particular. A little touch of romance, and a lot of humor and adventure all rolled together to make a perfect book! If you see it anywhere--buy it! You won't be disappointed. You might also want to try the Telzey stories and Demon Breed. They are also great! I haven't been able to get my hands on any of the other books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5There's more than one meaning to "edited!"3 janvier 2005
Par SlanFan - Publié sur Amazon.com
I second the preceding reviews, with one exception. One reviewer complains that the novel has been "edited," so he wouldn't touch it. Actually (check Eric Flint's website), Flint's editing took the form of (1) selecting the book for reprinting, and (2) correcting typos, missing words, etc.. Unless a reader is overly fond of typoed words, there is no difference between previous editions of this exciting, humorous, and thoroughly enjoyable classic sf novel and the new edition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5My Favorite Sci-Fi Novel...1 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I first read "The Witches of Karres" when I was twelve years old and happened across it in the stacks of my hometown library. I have never found any science fiction book before or since that could match it in terms of pure enjoyment. It is one of only two or three books that I will not lend under any circumstances (and given that it's a perfect first edition, that I won't even let someone touch). I fell in love with Goth and fancied myself as Pausert in many a happy dream. I had nightmares in which the Sheem Assasin came alive, the fur moving and the body taking shape. I still shudder at the thought after all these years. It's a shame the book didn't win the Hugo that year, because it's so excellent, but that doesn't change anything. My only regrets are that Schmitz never published a sequel (though from what I've read he thought about one and maybe even worked on it a bit) and that I didn't buy a stack of the original Chilton first editions for two bucks a pop while they were still in print! Given today's special effects wizardry, "The Witches of Karres" would make a one heck of a fun movie...
