    This is very much a mood piece about people moving through a dark world where everyone else is in a forced sleep.The premise of the book is that humanity faces an energy crisis a term not used in the book, but that s the concept, and a little prescient as the book was written in 1971 which is solved through the discovery of a new power source But there s a catch When these generators are turned on, they create a field that renders everyone in range unconscious So the machines are only This is very much a mood piece about people moving through a dark world where everyone else is in a forced sleep.The premise of the book is that humanity faces an energy crisis a term not used in the book, but that s the concept, and a little prescient as the book was written in 1971 which is solved through the discovery of a new power source But there s a catch When these generators are turned on, they create a field that renders everyone in range unconscious So the machines are only turned on at night One in a million are naturally immune or can learn to fight the effect, and so are able to move about while everyone else is in a forced sleep A conspiracy has found a way to use this field to not just put people to sleep, but to control their actions.The book then veers off into a plot line about advancing technology bumping into the supernatural.A good science fiction story should carry the reader along with the scientific or technical premise When there are flaws in the science, a good writer can bluff you past them or at least toss in a glib explanation, like blithely declaring that the speed of light has been conquered with a hyperdrive or whatever Sleepwalkers World was a little weak on this It brought a lot of technical questions to my mind that the author never attempted to answer Like, the sleep effect apparently has a limited range, as they only turn the machines on at night , which of course is a different time in, say, the Carribean than in England, and the story moves between both places So rather than just suffering with this sleep effect, why couldn t they build the power stations in some uninhabited area, like the poles or the Sahara desert And how do they maintain the machines and keep them operating, as presumably no one is able to even observe them while they are running, much less tune them or otherwise work on them Indeed, did anyone anticipate this effect when they were inventing the machine If not, then the first time someone turned it on, it would have put the inventor to sleep, and how did anyone get near to turn the thing off Etc.The supernatural angle is very vague Exactly how has this technology tuned in to the supernatural Maybe that s deliberate, but I found it unsatisfying.The moral core of the story is also vague The hero and the villain both dismiss the ideas of good and evil as simplistic and primitive they are above such things But then, by what standard is the hero superior to the villain The villain seeks power and his own benefit, while the hero is working for freedom and the good of all Okay Is selfishness evil and generosity good Is tyranny evil and freedom good If not, why should we prefer one to the other If there is no good and evil, then what makes the hero a hero and the villain a villain Well, I guess I ve harped on the weaknesses of this book, but it is a good read It succeeds in creating a creepy mood, especially in the middle And there s a good mystery about just who the villain really is

    This was odd I was entertained and the writing was good But, I don t know, the main character wasn t explained very well And I guess I never really got who the villain was or where all this power was coming from Weird.

    SHORT VERSION Sleepwalker s World is a typical Gordon R Dickson story The characters are a little less dynamic and the story a littlemuddled, but that is comparing it to other stories by this master, not to other writers If you love Mr Dickson, you will enjoy this book Note The original story was written in 1971 and is getting long in tooth.LONG VERSIONGordon R Dickson has been one of my all time favorite authors Wolfling and Dorsai are on my often reread pile, so when I won Sle SHORT VERSION Sleepwalker s World is a typical Gordon R Dickson story The characters are a little less dynamic and the story a littlemuddled, but that is comparing it to other stories by this master, not to other writers If you love Mr Dickson, you will enjoy this book Note The original story was written in 1971 and is getting long in tooth.LONG VERSIONGordon R Dickson has been one of my all time favorite authors Wolfling and Dorsai are on my often reread pile, so when I won Sleepwalker s World at ConGregate I was over the moon to have a book by this master of science fiction I hadn t read yet.Sometimes you shouldn t visit childhood memories with adult understanding Originally published in 1971, looking at the story through the lens of 2019, produced smears I wouldn t have noticed when I wore the rosy glasses of fangirl in the eighties.It isn t bad, but it isn t NOW 2019.Following Mr Dickson s formula and this book is practically picture perfect outline of his formula so if you like his stuff, you will like this , we got a super man Someone who is smart, and physically perfect, and maybe a little psychic, but not too much, as our hero we are to identify with Our sympathy for him stems from his disassociation with the human race he tries to protect, even though he has evolved beyond it Opposite him is an evil, also part of the human race Where the hero, our protagonist, is an individual and embraces individuality as a religion, the antagonist is also a superbeing using humanity s herd features to rule them behind the scenes A ruling class supports the antagonist unknowingly Ying and yang both have to exist as humanity as a species decides what is the best way to go republican or democrat um, worship of the individual or worship of the community.The hero will have one friend to help support him, someone close to his capabilities, but still, sadly, human He will also get a beautiful, perfect, smart woman who also isn t quite his equal Note the male will help the hero, but the woman will just support him by telling him he must stay a good man The woman in some manner will be part of the prize between the two forces of nature the villain and hero Neither capable of loving her, but she will be completely emotionally loyal to the hero by the end of the story after doing a quick betrayal somewhere in there without meaning to, because she is still only human and weak Overall the dynamics between the hero and his companions is like what is found in Dr Who.In the end, the hero will save humanity and win the girl I say girl because she is always younger than the hyper evolved man and realize he needs to lead humanity on its next step while he learns how to be human for his mate So sad that he will always be alone on some level among others after defeating his one equal.This is the formula for nearly every novel length work Mr Dickson produced The short stories heldvariation I like this formula When I was younger, I loved identifying with a superhuman and helping humanity as an individual leader from the outside instead of joining a crowd and trying to fix things from within My fire and brimstone of teenage years matched Mr Dickson in his heyday.Now, though How the women are treated, even when smart and useful He had virtually forgotten about her in the this is a direct quote from page 117 of 176 More than halfway through and we know how much value this woman has to our hero Just someone to protect.That is the first smear on my lens, and then we have the superman white male a favorite of Heinlein, and Dr Who, and James Bond, and everyone until the eighties started breaking up the fallacy that only white men working alone can save us.I loved Gordon R Dickson for so long, but I think I have reached an age where I need to break up with him Thank you for the journey of the impossible and the building blocks you have given this generation to reach the next level If you haven t read Mr Dickson, do so Maybe not this one, which is only a mediocre example of the master at work, but one of them His well deserved Hugos include Solider, Ask Not and Lost Dorsai
