Tom Godwin wrote a wonderful store about a group of humans who are dumped on a hell planet. They were expected to die, but over generations they were able to survive and thrive. This story was known as both "The Survivors" and "Space Prison."

"The Space Barbarians" is a weak sequel. The story continues with the survivors having to deal with a new threat. The humans do a number of stupid things, which adds to the "tension." For example the humans allow some aliens, claiming to be allies, to put a special detector on each of the survivors' space ships. It turns out each special detector has a nuclear bomb in it.

If you have never read the first story, go track it down now. It is a classic.

If you really enjoyed the first story, only read "The Space Barbarians" if you are willing to be disappointed, otherwise skip it and retain your found memories.

Godwin tried too hard.

"Prison Planet" is great, I enjoy re-reading it every so often. I was looking forward to the sequel.

However, I dropped this book into the discard pile about halfway through; I'd rather straightforward plots rather than contrived complexity. Instead of overcoming obstacles through ingenuity and perseverance, Godwin has the Ranarokians facing despicable Earth/ Athena characters and aliens with no apparent redeeming qualities. A constant parade of difficulties appear out of nowhere ("third level spaceship? Eh?) with little foundation or rationale.

Maybe it gets better in the second half, but ....

Anyone wants it- price of shipping.
