faraway planet where a furry and peaceful people live in village based civilization, where government is basically a mayor and a shaman magician, where life is good and food is plentiful Then a human

the story abounds with puns, inside SF jokes, and lighthearted satire while also managing to do very well on its own account as a unique, highly entertaining, story.Gerrold and Niven are of course both grand masters of SF who are known for their outrageous visions of the future and complex cultures, but this book is a hidden and perhaps largely forgotten gem rgb This is good, if a bit campy The running jokes puns are cute, but they really do wear a bit thin by the end.Purple As A Mauve is a visitor to a far away planet from Earth, where he discovers a furry race of proto human types They must be a VERY close match, as eventually there is an instance of interbreeding, which is tough.Through a series of comedy of customs misunderstanding, Purple, Lant, Shoogar, and the bicycle making

journey, but only after the visitor turns the local society on its ear, and invents crime and money for them while he is at it.I dont know that the story being told from the point of view of Lant was the a great way to go other than that is made it easy to say things in the way of, Purple did this specific thing, so he must have intended THIS thing, because in our culture, that s the way it works Still, it is a short read at 316 pages, and it is certainly worth the time David Gerrold is hilarious The storyline is suspiciously similar to another very popular Larry Niven advanced human is stranded amidst primitive aliens, works with prehistoric technology to rescue himself while learning valuable lessons and altering the natives lives forever But, in The Flying Sorcerers, the story is

little Dr Zachary Smith, a touch of Antonio Salieri, a teeny bit of Professor Snape, and yes, a little touch of Jean Baptiste Emanuel Zorg in his itchy trigger finger on the WMD button But he s a brilliant character and easily overshadows everyone and everything else this is, to the core, his story Other than that, a nice adventure story with science
