The Barnes & Noble ReviewLike Arthur C. Clarkes Rendezvous with Rama and Larry Nivens Ringworld, John Varleys 1979 masterwork Titan (nominated for both the Hugo and Nebula Awards) is one of the most monumental and universally beloved novels of the 1970s -- and thanks to Ace Books, Varleys entire Gaean trilogy (Titan, Wizard, and Demon) is being repackaged and reissued in paperback.When an exploratory spaceship captained by Cirocco Rocky Jones discovers what appears to be a massive new moon orbiting Saturn, the crew investigates -- only to be captured by the strange satellite (which turns out to be a gigantic sentient being) and drawn into its unfathomable depths.

The seven crew members are separated, held in a state of suspended animation for an undetermined period of time, and eventually reborn into a fantastical subterranean world totally naked, hairless -- and deeply altered. In a realm populated by a wonderland of mythical creatures, Rocky and her surviving crewmates must somehow stay alive long enough to find a way to communicate with the god that calls itself GaeaScience fiction fans who first read Titan in 1979 will be pleasantly surprised by how well Varleys masterpiece of imagination -- a blend of Arthur C. Clarkes 2001: A Space Odyssey and L.

Frank Baums The Wizard of Oz -- has withstood the test of time- and younger genre fans who know Varley only from more recent works (Steel Beach, Red Thunder, Mammoth, et al.) will be blown away be this aptly titled cult classic. Paul Goat Allen
