    One thought on “Dream Dancer”

    1. I must have tried to read this when I was a kid. The cover is very familiar -- and eyecatching to teenage boys. It's a woman floating in space, wearing a dress that seems to be made of a length of gauze, a piece of string, and a pigeon. There are also some more-phallic-than-usual starships.I wonder if the cover was painted as a nude in space (a scene from the book!) and then covered over with the dress (also from the book! but a different scene) for publication. Hm. No, the coronet doesn't fit t [...]

    2. The entire Kerrion Empire trilogy is great space opera.Notes added after a rereadI first read Dream Dancer some thirty years ago. Based on my very positive memory of the book, I gave it five stars when I started entering my reads (those I could remember) in my GoodReads DB.I am happy to say that Dream Dancer has held up very well and is still a damn good read. Were I reading it for the first time, I would probably give it four stars; however, I will respect the opinion of my earlier self and lea [...]

    3. This is book one of the Kerrion Empire trilogy, all of which came out in the 80's and all of which are great reads. Morris is one of the few Sci Fi writers who can successfully mix space politics, cultural wars and soap opera ingrigue. C.J. Cherryh is another. The heroine of this series is a resident of the now down and out planet earth which has fallen into a dark age and sees all science as magic and enchantments. By accident Shebat is rescued from her endentured service on earth and thrust in [...]

    4. When this series was brand new, I cherished and read these books twice; and encouraged all of my friends to read them I really loved the sentient ships, I think, and they're what I remember most, many years later; aside from the fact that Morris's writing is really good. This set of 3 is one that I have kept with me for many years, through all the moves and sell-off purges to winnow my collection.

    5. First line:   "A.D. 2248: On the day after the killer frost took a ready harvest, a trio of cloaked enchanters came riding into Bolen's town, New York, on froth-dappled black horses whose brasses shone like the sun."For those of you who only read specific kinds of sci-fi:(these may be mild spoilers).Aliens? Nope.FTL (Faster-Than-Light) starships: Yes.Space battles? BarelyHard sci-fi? No. Fantastical elements? Yes.Sex? Some.Violence? Yes, not gory.Military sci-fi? No.Cliffhanger ending? Sort of, [...]

    6. This book is a tad like being on acid but for some reason it hooked me. I started reading at my mom's house because I had forgotten my own book. I like the setting--meaning the actual setting and the the what makes it scifi/fantasy (i.e the magic used, etc). It would not get more than 3 stars from me however because it has very little character development. Things kind of jump around haphazardly with not enough explanation of why the characters are doing what. But it has intrigued me enough that [...]
