frontier scifi stuff, really great stuff ( )
  Mrdrewk | Dec 2, 2014 |
352 pages Science fiction. Book continues the story of the colonists of the planet Coyote. I enjoyed the story and agreed with the message of limited develpment on a new planet. I did think the ending of the story and it's surprise was a bit forced. None less I want more stories from this world. ( )

Book three, and boy does it end on a cliffhanger. I may go check out the rest of the Alan Steele from the library. ( )

Coyote Frontier was a satisfying conclusion to an enjoyable and cohesive trilogy. I had hoped that the series as a whole would be more on the sciency side of science fiction, but for what it actually was, I have no real complaints. ( )

The third collection of Coyote stories continues to maintain a high standard, and this group of eight related tales is of similar quality to the first collection.

A European Alliance ship arrives at Coyote, which opens the way for negotiations between Earth and the Coyote Federation. The big news is they have Starbridge technology, which, when built, will make travel time between the two worlds near-immediate, as opposed to a work of decades or at least a lengthy period, given improving ship technology.

This brings political manoeuvring, diplomacy and skullduggery, as Earth is desperate, given their extreme depletion of resources, even with a few fledging off-planet colonies. Coyote is still the only immediately inhabitable world found.

Not everyone on Coyote agrees with what happens, and pro and anti-development feelings exist, and the planet has a definite history of rebellion. Then there's the Spindrift story and the disappearance of the Galileo to be considered.

The main series continues to impress.

The next-to-last day of Muriel came as the mellow aftermath of a long rainy season, the morning warm and dry, with a clear blue sky vacant of clouds.
