    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies Kindle Ceci n'est pas une pipe This is not a pipeAnd Galaxies is not a book Or rather it is a book But it is not a book you or I can read It is a hypothetical book And so Galaxies the one that we are reading is a meta book Malzberg is writing a book about writing a book And playfully deliberately and entirely as expected he spends so much time talking about how he plans to writ

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies KindleFirst thoughts So this is totally the glorious wild genre deconstruction that was promised to meLater alright Malzberg I know you admitted up front in one of your narrative puncturing authorial address sections that it wasn't your thing and I really don't care about hard sf either but I at least need to know your working model for how a black hole acts with a little specificity They're inherently fascinating and your conception is just a little too spongy it's an unending limbo the living and the dead become interchangeable leaping out of it is potentially universe breaking Amazing Now please give some slight lead on why we're to believe these thingsAnd then This is very nearly a critical essay on genre fictio

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies Kindlei like this book i love the idea of this book galaxies is as you have read in all the other reviews here not really a novel it's the sketch of a novel it's a criticism of science fiction it's a literary essay it's a one sided dialogue with the trends in seventies fiction it is riveting but tied to its time it is self aware and it is an interesting story but it's also just a little too pretentious for me to give it 5 stars malzberg obviously hadhas a very interesting mind but galaxies just rides a little too hard on the gimmick still some of the writing legitimately sent me into a little bit of a self reflective tailspin this book than most conventionally science fiction encourages you to engage not just with the story but with the few very big uestions only science fiction writing can properly ask

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies KindleIn a way Barry Malzberg’s science fiction is closer to criticism than it is to ‘literature’ The way that his books interrogate and deconstruct the genre matters almost than ‘plot’ and ‘character’ It’s just as well that he is such a good writer And that he so obviously loves what he is compelled to destroy ‘Galaxies’ is the textbook exampleYou could say that ‘Galaxies’ is the book that he had to write Its structure is one that actually underlies most of his books simp

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies KindleIn the ironic cyclical nature of this novel I imagine it only fitting that it ended the way it began both in terms of the way it's presented as well as my own feelings towards it It began with the

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies KindleThis is how every novel should be written and how every novel should not be written To be fair it's stated at the beginning that it is not a novel at all but notes towards a novel Those notes collect the basic elements of story plot character setting and set them aside philosophical musings and other mental droppings It's entertaining and new and even exciting for a while then I found myself wanting to read a novel not the notes towards one or at least notes that veered closer to novel than novelty Yet it is I who have demanded novels be novel and here I am presented with one that is novel to a T light speed space travel defined and debated; a ship with a cargo of the dead who earn speaking roles later on in this slim volume a big breasted protagonist though the author writes the real protagonist is the black hole that sucks the woman pilot and her dead cargo into a 70000 year sinkhole of time and space; t

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies KindleAnguished by hyper lucidity a disembodied science fiction writer taps out the letters “LENA THOMAS” and instantly finds himself “warped” to the female astronaut’s domain of the 40th century Lena and the writer’s su


  • Jlawrence

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies Kindle3 12 stars A cocktail that mixes meta commentary on science fiction cliches with its own existential tale of a female astronaut trapped in an eternal fall into a black hole The conceit and Malzberg's sharp thought is uite exhilarating at the beginning but I actually wish he'd pushed the meta exploration further eg how about showing examples of alternate versions of the story based on different market pressuresdifferent approaches instead of sticking to its one repetitive scenario the story of our trapped astronaut stays consistent despite the narrator interruptions and some of the novel's in story stabs at profundity fall ridiculously flat though with some of them it's hard to tell if its intentional parody of overwrought existential inertia All in all intriguing and I'd like to sample a bit Malzberg though the summaries of some of his other works makes it sound like he may too often re use the scenario of scientistastronaut trapped in a situation where they can do nothing but

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies KindleMeta Not a novel but a set of notes for one from the character of a stuffy bloodless science fiction author trapped in suburbia and desperate to use grand themes and be taken seriously like his literary heroes Cheever and Barthelme Occasionally funny sometimes annoying his stilted abstract dialogue plays like a low rent Waiting for Godot Not bad not great but like all science fiction the hook is in the concept not the characterizationConfused the hell out of me as a teen especially as the cheap paperback cover blurb looks plays it like a straight sci fi novel Now coming back to it after some years I can get it


  • Larry

    Galaxies PDF EPUB ¹ Paperback galaxies download, Galaxies KindleUnusual book from 1975 The whole thing is in the form of 'novel notes' I guess it's supposed to be partly telling a story and partly providing a glimpse into the mind of the writer as he works Or somethingI felt like Malzberg mostly pulled off what would have been just a gimmick for a lot of writers Spacecraft in the year 39xx is pulled out of hyperspace by a galaxy sized black hole The expedition is financed by the estates of dead people whose bodies are on board in the hopes of a resurrecting effect that occurs in hyperspaceNot his best work but worth reading
