Format: Paperback
As a semi-avid science fiction and Arthur C. Clarke fan, I was intrigue when... recommended the Venus Prime series (Volumes 1-4) to me. I had read other works written by Mr. Clarke when paired with other writers, (The Light of Other Days with Stephen Baxter, and the Rama series with Gentry Lee, both of which were excellent). Venus Prime, written exclusively by Paul Preuss, but based upon some earlier works by Mr. Clarke, at first glance didn't seem appealing, (probably due to the overly-comely and simplistic illustration of a young female space explorer on the cover), but my interest eventually grew as I read more editorial and customer reviews, (and as... computer kept recommending it to me based upon the product ratings I awarded to other science fiction novels I had read).
I eventually succumbed and ordered Volume 1. I read it over a weekend (and as I took my son to his piano lesson) -- and it was excellent! As I write this review, I'm now reading Volume 3, after having just finished Volume 2, each of which is as engaging as the first.
Venus Prime is an excellent science fiction novel -- and an excellent series -- taking place on the future Earth settlements of the Moon, Venus and Mars. The main character, Ellen Troy, is a young woman with a mysterious and forgotten past which, during each episode, she slowly attempts to uncover as she searches for her parents whom she suspects, from her shattered and brainswashed memory, may be dead.

I first read the entire series when they first came out. I am missing the fourth one which is what brought me to amazon.com again. I highly recommend reading all of them. I find the caliber of work somewhere around the same level as Zelanzy, Anthony, Donaldson...In fact the "Gap" series and Venus prime are close indeed.

After 30 years experience in the Space Program, NASA, and deep Space probes, I have to say this is one of the more intellectuall accurate, and stimulating stories I have read. I am an Clarke fan, having read 2001 when it first came out in 1968, but the combination of Clarke's vision and Preuss's writing skills makes this Venus Prime Series a set of books you will not be able to put down!

Format: Paperback
Sparta is the name of a bio-enahnced young woman. She wakes everyday, knowing nothing of the day last past. Then one day Sparta's keen senses trip a deep mechanistic response to escape where she is. Only minutes later she finds herself in a mega-fast mega-powerful attack helicopter; somehow, she knows exactly how to fly it... From then on she will have to assume a new identity - hiding in the open as an elect officer. She knows only that she's looking for her true self - she will solve many other mysteries along the way. This is a fantastic trip and an excellent read! Also, it is difficult to get all six (6) in the series - if you find them (all) BUY THEM AT ONCE! It has taken me three years to collect them all.

few writers have pulled off agood sf mystery-let alone a locked room mystery. Preuss expands on Clarke's short story admirably. First rate.
