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 next millenium.

Outies is an authorized seuel to The Mote in God's Eye and The Gripping Hand by best selling SF duo Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle With a fresh point of view deep continuity and page turning plot twists JR Jennifer Pournelle brings a mature generation of Moties to life for a mature generation of readers Outies introduces new characters adds depth to beloved old ones creates a rich imaginable world and gives clear voices to aliens and outsidersIn a return to the CoDominium universe of the Second Empire of Man Outies pauses at the fringes of human space on an outworld that never knew fossil fuels New Utah instead pushed crude solar technologies to the limits of everyday utility But a planet is a big place and it's time for the New Utahns to meet the neighbors Blending hard science and social science Outies explores complexities of biology geology. The action in Outies builds and builds This book is like a song that starts with nature sounds adds a few notes like rain falling into the music drums up the excitement with a percussion rhythm and then pours on the instruments and storms on through to a joyful thunderous crescendo Readers of the Pournelle universe will love this seuel to The Mote in God s Eye The story sheds light on the origin of the Moties and the plot turns on science and engineering in a way that will delight fans of hard sf Those who are new to this series can catch up with the timeline and handy list of dramatis personae at the front of the book before getting swept away by the tempestuous story of how contact with an alien culture upends an all too human struggle for wealth power and souls Outies is a symphony of disparate characters orchestrated into one great read This review based on an advance proof of the print edition

Of Mormons moties and Earth islanders displaced by sea level rise and even masters some Tok Pisin along the wayAt nearly 110000 words about 400 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. This series declines in uality from book to book but the first one was of such very high uality that the floor is four or five levels up Not uite satisfying as the end of the series but it probably should be unless some real inspiration comes along Well worth the read but a little bit laundry list a little formulaicThe characters are still well drawn but it s hard for me to get involved with royal families and all of that the importance of the people lessens the import of the events of the narrativeI d recommend it but with some reservations Not really for anyone who wasn t captivated by the Moties in the first place
