F biology geology and ecology at the heart of alien Motie society and evolution While military science fiction in a sense that sense is very much of the wars of our time Outies plunges through the confusion chaos factionalism and unpredictability of low intensity conflict with realism but largely through civilian eyes In a twist on traditional space opera it introduces Asach uinn a wily thoughtful genderless and diplomatic foil to reckless pilot Kevin Renner Leaving the aristocratic manors of Sparta uinn burrows deep inside the heads of members of the Church of Him who believe that the red dwarf visible twinkling through the Coal Sack Nebula is literally the Eye of God Pournelle an ex Army intelligence officer turned anthropologist provides New Utah and its characters with a rich sense of place and deep motivations hints at what may become over the A continuation of The Mote in God s Eye series written by Jerry Pournelle s daughter an archeologist sometimes seen on Nat Geo You ll need to have read the first two books to know the significance of the characters in this one A fringe world near the coal sac is up for membership in the galactic government either as an independent entity or as a subservient colony The locals have a complex political structure with several competing factions but unknown to the one s in real power the people on the outskirts are in contact with a group of Moties The Empire of Man sends representatives to scout out the planet before official contact and stumble across the political intrigue and the Moties and have to decide what to do before the Empire shows up and reduces the planetary surface to glassThere s a slow hundred pages of world building before anything much happens then it s politics and backstabbing until the final solution is reached A great deal of time is spent exploring Motie physiology and the government of Space Mormons Good book that could have been shorter but Asach uinn is a very interesting character

Outies Moties #3

Next millenium of Mormons moties and Earth islanders displaced by sea level rise and even masters some Tok Pisin along the wayAt nearly words about print pages the book is packed with additional material designed to allow the reader to explore New Utah in as much depth as desired For those new to or needing a refresher on the Mote series a detailed chronology lists key events over the five centuries preceding Outies The cast of characters is organized by role and location providing hints of relationships that unwind over the course of the novel A map lays out the continental scale environs in which the story is set An appendix provides a guide to acronyms details of religious history and organization an explanation of alien accounting systems and evolutionary biology There is even an original musical score composed by music theorist J Daniel Jenkins Mediocre at bestNot near same level as first two Motie books Too many characters jumps from one place to another too often confusing and hard to follow all the plots and subplots Way too complicated Had to force myself through to the end
