  1. Was I not included on the memo that mentioned this guy How have I never heard of him Whatever the case may be, Richard Cowper aka John Middleton Murry, Jr is a fine writer My edition of this book includes both the title novel and the novella The Piper at the Gates of Dawn which introduces us to the world and specific circumstances that will drive the conflict of the novel.This is a story in the post apocalyptic pastoral vein, a sub set of the genre that I am finding is a lot common than I had a [...]


  2. La Route de Corlay est de ces livres qu il faut avoir recherch pour vraiment appr cier, moins d avoir les dispositions spirituelles n cessaires ou l int r t pour ce type de construction narrative.Personnellement, je m attendais un r cit de science fiction m tiss de fantasy dans un cadre postapocalyptique, un sous genre typique du milieu du XXe si cle Ce r cit le d faut ou la qualit , selon le point de vue de se servir de ce d cor pour y greffer une histoire de r bellion spirituelle dans la vieil [...]


  3. So the storytelling in this novel is pretty decent A solid little post apocalyptic fantasy about a new religion forming under the iron grip of an inquisitorial church in the year 3000 Some very cool mythology and some interesting concepts, including a fun little astral projection time travel narrative involving a scientist from the 1980 s being mentally trapped in the body of one of the heroes, which doesn t really play out in a satisfying way in the plot overall, but has fun implications and le [...]


  4. This was a re read I have liked this book for many years As always, I love the beginning and then it slows and is not as good for the last 2 3 of the book A good read for me with the nostalgia of my youth involved The fact that the premise of involves global warming and how long ago it was written 1978 , I find even interesting on each re read This is probably my fourth time through the book I don t do the half star thing, it would be a four if the pacing in the last part of the book was better [...]


  5. The lyrical flow and quintessential Englishness of this book manage to make up for its bourgeois moral colour and wacky mysticism If you don t mind such things, the story moves nicely and its heart is in the right place.


  6. I read this series back in the 1980s Going on the sense memory of one passage and the room I feel I was in, I can figure it was when I was at university, probably about 1987 or 1988 I know I enjoyed them and when I saw they were no available as ebooks, I was delighted to buy them and plan a reread It s taken me a few years to decide this is the moment, but I m really glad I did.I had thought they were published in the 80s too, but a look at the copyright dates I went and found my paper copies fo [...]


  7. un mixte de fantaisie avec projection temporelle et fond de mysticisme Cela date certes publi dans les ann es 70 80 mais parle d j du r chauffement climatique Tr s bien crit avec ce qu il faut d actions et de personnages attachants Je me suis laiss embarqu et ai h te de prolonger l aventure avec le T2 et T3 qui je l esp re seront de la m me qualit En plus, c est court environ 200 pages ce qui ne g te rien mon avis l auteur restant concentr sur l essentiel et vitant les digressions fastidieuses s [...]


  8. Includes the short story The Piper at the Gates of Dawn , originally collected in The Custodians, which introduces the White Bird of Kinship.A beautifully realised version of a pastoral, semi medieval post apocalyptic global warming future set in Britain, with flash backs to the present The vision of the future created by The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is extended in the subsequent novel, but it is the believability of that initial vision that elevates this story above the ordinary.


  9. Crossover science fantasy isn t my favorite genre, but Cowper does a decent enough job of it The science is very 1975, but the alternate world is well played and plausible The intro novella is especially enjoyable.


  10. Pseudonymously written by John Middleton Murry, Jr The Road to Corlay is the first volume of what became The White Bird of Kinship trilogy, comprising A Dream of Kinship 1981 A Tapestry of Time 1982 It made little impression on me.


  11. With the Piper at the Gates of Dawn included as a prologue this is a fascinating exploration of how a new religion gets launched The characters, especially Jane, are appealing and the plot straightforward.


  12. I first read The Piper at the Gates of Dawn in Fantasy and Science Fiction in the late 70 s I thought at the time there should be a sequel 45 years later I learn it turned into a trilogy It s good enough that I would read the second book.



  13. Good religious fiction in that it is fiction about a religion that is not Christianity though there are ties It isn t a book written to be fiction in a Christian world.
