I’m reading the Dumaest series from E. If one of you would sell me his copy or can help me find it that will be much appreciated.
See 1 question about The Return…. Lists with This Book. Jan 11, Liedzeit rated it really liked it Shelves: Tubb had written this immediately after the Terrae Data. So, one should think he knew what he was doing. But for a large part, this seems almost like a parody.
Crazy detours on the way home. Including a Kalin replica cruising along with some spacecraft, another plot by thhe Cyclan, to Also, there is always exactly one Cyber at a time who gets fooled by Dumarest. Well, not that the book is not brilliant. There are two women d it thi So, finally. There are two women in it this time. The first gets rescued by Earl.
She turns out to be the traitor in the end. She is the one who hands out the poisoned knife to the poor guy who fights Dumarest. Yes, the fight is in there. The rdturn one is from the same planet as the first, a planet of raiders, but does not really like the trade. Will Earl learn to love her? So, after the last attempt of the cybers failed, Earl is actually landing on planet Earth.
It seems I have to read the final book as well. Finally by the way, also in the sense that it took me 16 years to buy the book. I did not like the cover when it came out. And I thought it too expensive. Only, it went from expensive to astronomically expensive. Well, in the end, I had to bite the dust. Feb 23, Wayne rated it really liked it.
Brawny men, buxom babes, crimson betrayal, bravery, giant wasps, and Dumarest continues has search for Earth, this time hooking up with a ship full of space-vikings. There’s an interesting, small revelation where we learn that the Brotherhood isn’t too keen on Earth.
Since this is the second-to-last book in the series, one hopes that Dumarest might reach his objective soon. Jan 03, Roddy Williams rated it liked it Shelves: Previously this was only available in a French Language edition, for reasons which Tubb explains in the introduction, as well as giving an interesting overview of the history of thee saga since its beginnings in the s.

Returnn captured a female raider, he persuades her to take him to the raiders who are based on a world where slavery is a way of life. The Cyclan, who until now believed Dumarest to be dead, receive information to the contrary and so send a Cyber to investigate. The Cyclan have been unable to replicate the secret formula that Dumarest holds, by which they could control the minds of puppet-leaders of world governments.
Furthermore, the brains of cybers that have been stored in a vast underground linked network are going insane. Thus, the cyclan scientists have been working on artificial minds in cloned bodies into which the consciousnesses of the brains can be transferred Dumarest, winning the confidence of the raiders, tells them that there will be plenty of wealth to be found on Earth, and they set off in a raider ship.
There is a further volume Child of Earththe last, although hte it was planned to be the last remains to be seen. Certainly Dumarest has finally reached Earth so his quest appears to be at an end, which seems to be at odds with Tubb’s thoughts in the introduction.
However it is to Gollancz’ credit that they have issued this and the following volume in Kindle format along with a whole host of back catalogue good stuff. In I determined to read E.

Each novel can be read by itself – Only Dumarest’s ttubb for the location of Earth ties them together. Jan 18, Martin rated it liked it. Not a resolution to the story, but as the novel’s title implies, Earl achieves his goal of returning to Earth.
There’s a foreword and introduction from Tubb that go into detail about why the series was not ended for so long, and the ideal plans for it that fell through.
But as a reader, the satisfaction I wanted was to learn about Thr and why it was proscribed. Without any clarification on this, much of the hand-waving with regard to Earth that preceded “the return” seemed uncle Not a resolution to the story, but as the novel’s title implies, Earl achieves his goal of returning to Earth.
Without any clarification on this, much of the hand-waving with regard to Earth that preceded “the return” seemed unclear and confusing. Read it to conclude the experience, retugn if you can get past the lack of resolution for the story, it is as good a novel as any other in the series.
