    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUBThe idea of a sequel to H G Wells' Time Machine is irresistible Morlocks stealing the time machine and invading England of the 1890s? Fascinating If only someone other than K W Jeter wrote this Someone who actually had respect for the classic science fiction story Instead we get a jumble in which the original plot of the Time Machine is jettisoned for a mishmash concerning King Arthur Merlin and the lost city of Atlantis Even then this could have been salvageable if not for Jeter's poor ability to write Or is it his poor ability to imitate H G Wells' own marvelous style? Probably just a poor writer doing a poor imitation There is not much to like here I find it amazing that readers have called this a milestone in Steampunk It does not bode well for the genre

    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUBThis book wasn't for me unfortunately I'm a little surprised and than a little disappointed to have to say that As a reader I'm attracted to big wild crazy ideas If the ideas are cool enough I'm than willing to look past the parts of a book that don't work quite as well And this book one of the original steampunk novels written by the man who originated the very term practically boils over with wonderful ideas A direct sequel to H G Wells's The Time Machine? Sign me up Submarines Morlocks Victorian sewers time machines and King Arthur? How could this be anything but a wild romp?Alas I'm sorry to say this fell quite flat for meIt begins with terrific promise picking up just moments after the Time Traveler of Wells's novel has finished relating the tale of his far future travels to his dinner guests But then Merlin shows up and things quickly get muddled Our hero Edwin Hocker is a completely ineffectual twit who spends most of the book d

    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUB35How could I possibly resist The Time Machine sequel? If I were to label this in comparison to the present and popular steampunk books it would hardly pass as one I would not compare them though This is steampunk Hell the author coined the termThe story starts right after the dinner the narrator attended in The Time Machine Edward Hocker leaves with Dr Ambrose and gets dragged into a fight for saving mankind and Time itselfThere are tropes in this story than it is necessary but they don’t ruin it There is mythical hero a quest to combine four items a sacrifice a nod to Jules Verne good vs evil fight and a lot of others The thing is every time I thought that I knew what’s going to happen next the author surprised me Every time I knew who the next enemy was someone else w

    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUBThis was an odd sequel to H G Wells' book The Time Machine Jeter interweaves Wells' creation with Arthurian legend and Atlantean lore On top of that Morlock Night is one of the earliest examples of Steam Punk The author of the afterword credits Jeter with not only the coining of the term but also the founding of the genre He forgets James Blaylock's The Ape Box Affair predates this novel It's hard to believe they along with Tim Powers started a sub genre with their books that became so popular today I definitely recommend going back to its source though and Morlock Night isn't a bad place to start Those w

    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUBWhat a mess this book is It reads like a comic book written by two or three different people none of whom ever spoke to each other about what the plot's supposed to be I mean okay a sequel to The Time Machine's a cool idea but then Jeter throws in King Arthur and Atlantis for no good reason He disregards the whole point of the original novel to introduce intelligent Morlocks who capture the time machine and use it to invade the 19th Century Why? Shits and giggles I guess We're never given any explanation other than Morlocks are evil And then there's this woman who turns up at the end who's the secret mastermind of the Morlocks and we're never told who she is Morgana La Fey or why she's helping them shits and giggles again I supposeThis whole thing is on

    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUBThis is a jolly old romp written in 1979 but it doesn’t deserve the praise heaped on it by Tim Powers in his introduction and implicitly in the intelligent backgrounder by Adam Roberts at the end Powers’ own ‘Anubis Gates’ 1983 is vastly superior as one of the originating texts of ‘steampunk’ ‘Morlock Night’ quite simply does not stand up to scrutiny as the equivalent of say ‘Neuromancer’ the genuinely well written founding nove

    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUBI'm not sure how to rate this because this book was hilariously hack It was a quick fun read in a high camp sense I wonder if anyone has ever done a graphic novel version of this the fact that I'm not even interested enough to look this up probably says something because it seems like the kind of thing that would work even better with visuals the Edwardian guy gaping at the Morlocks swarming all over London with an OMFG look So yeah it's a sequel to The Time Machine in which the Morlocks come back to London and then you know have to be stopped from their nefari

    Morlock Night ePUB ↠ Paperback morlock epub, night book, Morlock Night PDF/EPUBHaving read The Time Machine and Stephen Baxter's brilliant and amusing The Time Ships I just HAD to read this What a shame The story has much potential but unfortunately it's padded out with an element of fantasy King Arthur and the search for Excalibur that really does not belong and in my opinion ruins itIt turns out that KW Jeter wrote the story as part of a project relating to the Arthurian legend and NOT as a hommage to and development of HGWells' story To claim it as one of the first steampunk novels is to give it credit than it deserves there's very little steam or punk in it at allIf you're looking for a good response to Wells read Baxter Much much better than this
