    1. review of John Brunner's The Dramaturges of Yan by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE - August 31, 2014 As w/ so many Brunner bks, most of what I potentially have to say about this 1 wd contain too many spoilers so I'll approach it somewhat abstractly instead. I've been on a Brunner review spree ever since my review of The World Swappers of February 18, 2013 ( /book/show/23 ). This is approximately the 39th bk I've read & reviewed by him so far & I'm still enjoying it so Brunner hasn't disappoin [...]

    2. Some strong strengths and weak weaknesses. Cool idea, and once it pulls together it is strong, but a very slow start, poor scene breaks, and a constant insistence on "Oh, what was that word they used to have *insert common word, to show it's the FUTURE*"

    3. Η πρώτη μου γνωριμία με αυτόν κλασικό Βρετανό συγγραφέα επιστημονικής φαντασίας και με άφησε σχεδόν απόλυτα ευχαριστημένο, και ας είναι αυτό το βιβλίο από τα λιγότερο γνωστά και καλά που έχει γράψει. Σαν σκηνικό έχουμε τον πλανήτη Γιαν πάνω στον οποίο ζουν Γήινοι και Γιανι [...]

    4. An elusive novel, The Dramaturges of Yan boasts big ideas, sensitive characterizations, and a vivid locale, but after setting the stage in painstaking fashion races to an overly discursive and disappointing ending. One would have to think a novelist of Brunner's obvious talents could have done more with this material. I'm giving it a generous four stars, though, because I enjoyed it so much up to a point, and the novel is too slender to wear out its welcome.To some degree, I guess that I just di [...]

    5. Until a somewhat rushed and annoying ending, I had planned to give it 4 stars. The basic concept, of man encountering intelligent aliens who were at one time more advanced than mankind, but now apparently are not, has been done many times. The reason for their stagnation, as it finally developed, was fascinating. The interaction with "art at all costs" entertainer was a clever plot twist, at least at first, as it echoed the circumstances which had supposedly brought the folks of Yan to a halt, 1 [...]

    6. É Brunner, mas ainda não o escritor experimentalista que corre riscos de Stand on Zanzibar. Neste livro segue uma estrutura mais clássica de ficção científica, focado numa história de contacto entre a humanidade e uma inteligência alienígena. A pequena colónia humana do planeta Yan convive amigavelmente com os curiosos costumes dos nativos do planeta, herdeiros estagnados de uma civilização avançada que legou misteriosas estruturas. Há um erro de identificação na natureza da civi [...]

    7. Απίστευτες ιδέες και εξαιρετικοί χαρακτήρες συνοδεύουν μια ήπια, στα όρια του πράου προσέγγιση του τι θα πει εξέλιξη και τι θα πει τέχνη. Ένα από τα κείμενα εφ που δεν προδίδουν την ηλικία τους παρά μόνο από μικρολεπτομέρειες, συμπύκνωσε σε ελάχιστες σελίδες, μικρότητες, πά [...]

    8. The end is weirdly prescient of one of the concepts in Cameron's Avatar--that of a world-sized collective entity composed of discrete smaller organisms. Proof that this is not exactly a new concept. Brunner, of course, does it better and without any of the violence.The other interesting thing is that one of the main characters is a (sympathetically portrayed) poet, and said world-consciousness winds up being an artist, albeit an insane one. Brunner doesn't try his hand at any actual poetry, thou [...]

    9. This was an enjoyable read but it suffers from an unsatisfying ending. The 1970s vision of what a WWW would be like is quite interesting but does little to rescue the ultimately underdeveloped story arc.
