Stephen Goldin discussing "Eternity Brigade" in Author Chat (August 2013)

Reviews

I don't have the "final" edition, I've got the one from the 80's so that's what I read.

I thought Shrine of the Desert Mage was a lot of fun, so decided to try another book from Stephen Goldin. I wasn't disappointed. Like the other book, you can definitely tell this book was written in the 80's. There's a "brashness" to it that wouldn't go over as well today.

I thought the idea of "freezing soldiers" and then just bringing them out when needed, was both interesting and horrifying, and the results were definitely interesting and horrifying. Goldin didn't seem to hold back postulating about what the future would be like, and it was cool to see his imagination just running wild.

There is a lot of sex in the book, but most of it is not described. There is a single line about a rape (that's pretty shocking), but overall, it fits with the story and doesn't seem to be gratuitous.

Extremely TOS-style. Features very underdeveloped Klingons. Again.
