    I read the first two books of John Varley s magnificent Gaean trilogy, Titan and Wizard, when I was in high school, back in the mid eighties and I really enjoyed them Somehow, inexplicably, I never read the third, Demon When I began reading again in 2008 after graduating from law school and then especially when I connected with Goodreads in 2011, I remembered the trilogy and decided to finish what was started.Demon was first published in 1984 and completes the trilogy of humanity s enco

    For the most part, I absolutely love this trilogy On the idea front, it s wild with some of the coolest and strangest story combinations, from a life as a movie set to an intentionally perverse Greek Mythos setup to the enormous annihilation of humanity in the Fifth Nuclear War some twenty years after book 2 , to the fact that we re on an all out trip to overthrow a god here on the artificial moon.Cirocco Jones is something around a hundred and twenty years old at this point and she s com

    SPOILER WARNING As I m combining the reviews of all the books in The Gaean Trilogy in this entry for Demon, there may be spoilers ahead though I ll keep them to a minimum With that in mind, I ll get my solid recommendation to read these books out of the way The story and characters are interesting Gaea is a fascinating concept, and definitely a place I d love to visit and the Titanides are one of the coolest alien races ever invented.I first read Titan when I was a teen ager I can rememb SPOI

    It strikes me, as I finish up Demon, that John Varley s trilogy is in many ways a mirror image of Arthur Clarke s 2001, a Space Odyssey While both stories begin with humans exploring alien technology in the outer solar system, Clarke s is all about the computers, space travel, and alien technology, while Varley s is all about human relationships Clarke s aliens are aloof and cold, leaving behind technology just in case humans manage to develop into something interesting Varley s Gaea is inten I

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is a strange book It s a lot to take in It s got zombies, centaur like creatures, lesbians, witches, a giant Marilyn Monroe and so much .So I read it again I bought the Gaea series directly from John Varley s site It costmoney, of course, but he signs it and the money goes directly to him and if anyone deserves some loot to go directly to him it s John Varley.I need to readof him And you need to read this series

    I review all three books here Titan, Wizard and Demon.Ah, Varley, what am I to do with you First and foremost, this trilogy is highly enjoyable, if quirky and eccentric in some places Varley has a strong sense of how people work and his wisdom in his understanding of human interaction plays well in building a strong plot, and several subplots that add to the story s attractiveness I thoroughly enjoyed reading these books when the came out, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to them when I fo I revi

    This is the final volume of the Gaea trilogy by John Varley I found it totally a worthwhile read and the characters were fleshed out enough to be their own and likeable My one and only downer on this was my own failing I ve not read many trilogies and hardly ever back to back to back, and I became a bit like someone that had a visitor that has over stayed I began to be ready to move on to something else, yet I was too involved with this story I never considered dropping it.This series is pr This is the


  10. Ian Ian says:

    Disappointingly, the most conventional book in the trilogy surprising since it mostly concerns the build up to war with a 50 foot Marilyn Monroe avatar Varley falls back on war novel stuff, half baked politics and too much deliberate withholding of important plot points in service of the big reveal to really pull off a satisfying conclusion.
