Reactions and Reviews

So, speaking of philosophy and religion, has anyone else felt that the novel, DRAGON'S TEETH, was curious in its attitude toward R&P? I enjoyed DT: Hines-Stroede is a fine writer who can keep me reading no matter that her PoV and mine are apparently quite different regarding Life, the Universe and Everything. No problem there: lots of people don't necessarily agree with my SW universe, but I'm grateful to them for reading THOUSANDWORLDS anyway. However, DT's lack of any acknowledgement of metaphysics astonished me in a SW story concerning Jedi. If I had been asked, I would have said that SW Jedi without metaphysics was impossible. This opinion may, naturally, just reflect my own spiritual leanings ("Zen Jedi" Susan Foxwyf calls it). And, of course, the Saga is presented from the PoV of people who interpret the existence of the Force as a call to philosophy. In DT, the Force is just a tool that comes more readily to the hand of talented persons than to the general population, and the Jedi are presented as not only "human" but quite '80's-style venal. But I'm curious to know if anyone else had this reaction. [1]
I gave it thirteen hours of non-stop, undivided attention. I couldn't put it down until I reached the last page. Wonderful! [2]
