ás es honrado Tuf consigue una enorme nave espacial el Arca la única superviviente del antiguo Cuerpo de Ingeniería de la Vieja Tierra El Arca es un artilugio desaparecido hace más de mil años pero ue revive. It took me a long time to get ahold of this book I finally received it as a present Don t wait as long as I did to read it this is a great book It s certainly very different from the epic fantasy that Martin has become best known for but fans of Martin are aware of his breadth of stylesThe book collects stories about Haviland Tuf Ecological Engineer and cat lover that were originally published separately but they come together as a coherent novelThe first section is a classic subtraction story Tuf a minor space trader owner of the ship Cornucopia Of Excellent Goods At Low Prices is hired by a diverse group of disreputable types who suspect they know where to find untold booty an intact seedship of a defunct Empire powerful than anything now known to the galaxy Unfortunately disreputable characters tend to behave disreputably and soon infighting and plots occur Due to a combination of ingenuity and luck Tuf ends up the sole owner of the ship and sets himself up as an Ecological Engineer available for hire to fix any sort of planetary problemAlthough he has a variety of comissions and adventures he keeps getting called back to the planet of S uthlam a place overpopulated by a nice but religious people who believe it is their manifest destiny to breed as much as possible In the past this has caused major problems with their planetary neighbors who don t care to be overrun by S uthlam Now they are confined to their own planet but they are running out of food and resourcesTuf helps with improved agricultural strains and methods but this just enables the S uthlam to breed rapidly The hard headed tough Portmaster Tully Mune who knows her people have an even serious problem than they realize has to keep calling Tuf back and drastic problems may call for drastic measuresThis book is clever funny entertaining and also deals deftly with some of the most serious problems that we here on earth have much like the S uthlam refused to engage More than anything else I ve read lately I keep finding myself talking about this book to other people
