This is a sequel to 'Slan' written in the 1940's. It was started in the 1990's by the original author. It was then discovered that the author suffered from Alzheimers and had managed to hide it. This became apparent at a meeting to review his finished sequel. The sequel was not finished as announced. Kevin J. Anderson was hired to finish the book. This could have been a great book, but the author(s) apparently stuck with the logic of the 1940's. The book reads like many sci-fi books of this period, including "spinning computer tapes" and "cathode tubes". There are many logical implausibilities in the story. ( )

I'll approach this one with some interest. The choice of Kevin J. Anderson for the sequel to SLAN seems less inspired than the choice of John C. Wright for the sequel to THE WORLD OF NULL-A.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765316757, Hardcover)

This startling SF adventure novel is a collaboration between the classic SF Grand Master, A. E. van Vogt, and contemporary master Kevin J. Anderson. At the time of his death in 2000, van Vogt left a partial draft and an outline for the sequel to his most famous novel, Slan. van Vogt's jam-packed, one-damn-thing-after-another story technique makes his active plots compulsively readable. Now the story is completed by Anderson, and is sure to be one of the most popular SF novels of the year.
Slans are a race of superior mutants in the far future, smarter and stronger than Homo sapiens and able to read minds. Yet they are a persecuted minority, survivors of terrible genocidal wars, who live in hiding from the mass of humanity. Slan Hunter tells of this towering conflict in the far future, when a new war among the races of mankind bursts out, and humanity -- all types of humanity -- struggles to survive, and of course of the heroic Jommy Cross, mutant hero of Slan.

"Slans are a race of superior mutants, smarter and stronger than homo sapiens and able to read minds. Thousands of years in the future on Earth, the Slan Wars are over, and the slans were largely wiped out, but people still fear and distrust them. They are now a persecuted minority who live in hiding from the greater population." "Slan Hunter tells of this towering conflict in the far future, a war among the races of mankind, as humanity - all types of humanity - struggles to survive."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
