Maybe there's only a happy ending because Dick was going through a funk and needed some light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe, like the protagonist of Clans, we'll find out we were normal all along. And if that's the case, who cares? Aug 18, Sandy rated it really liked it. Dick saw published in the years and ' Released in as a cent Ace paperback F, for all you collectors out there , it was his 14th sci-fi novel since This period in the mid-'60s was a time of near hyperactivity for the author.

Under the influence of prescription uppers like one of "Clan"'s central characters, Chuck Rittersdorf, who takes extraterrestrial "thalamic stimulants of the hexo-am "Clans of the Alphane Moon" was one of six books that sci-fi cult author Philip K. Under the influence of prescription uppers like one of "Clan"'s central characters, Chuck Rittersdorf, who takes extraterrestrial "thalamic stimulants of the hexo-amphetamine class" in order to work two jobs , his output during that time was both prodigious and wildly imaginative.

In the book, we are introduced to some of the residents of the second moon of Alpha Centauri's third planet: A mental hospital had existed there some 25 years before, its residents left to their own devices when Earth abandoned this world back when. Now, in the year or so, the former inmates have most certainly taken over the asylum, and the moon is ruled by the six titular clans, organized according to their members' various mental imbalances. Thus, there are the Manses manics , the Pares paranoiacs , the Heebs hebephrenics , the Skitzes schizophrenics , the Ob-Coms obsessive-compulsives and the Polys polymorphous schizophrenics.

Some of these residents, mainly the Heebs and Skitzes, have even developed various "psionic" powers, such as the ability to foretell the future via visions and to levitate! To this literally crazy world comes a group of disparate characters, drawn there for various reasons revolving around the Alphans' and Terrans' annexation claims.

Mary Rittersdorf is a psychiatrist, there to assess and analyze the population; Chuck, her husband, a CIA Counter Intelligence Authority agent, is there to kill his ex-wife, with whom he had recently split; and the famous TV comedian Bunny Hentman is present for political reasons of his own. And then there is Lord Running Clam, easily the most memorable and likable character in this book: As you may have inferred, there is some pretty zany sci-fi plotting involved here, with 36 named characters, and Dick mixes his stew with a good deal of zest and humor.

The novel is one of the author's more accessible ones, with none of his trademarked abnegations of reality to blow the reader's mind. Still, not everything is as it seems, double agents abound, human-seeming "simulacra" are ubiquitous "Person, shmerson," one of them tellingly says at one point and moral truths are slippery things "Quid est veritas And Dick's Earth of the midst century almost seems as whacky as the Alphane moon and perhaps that is the point.

Nipple-dilation and extreme breast-augmentation surgeries for women are common lb. I must say that as much as I enjoyed "Clans" and it IS an extremely enjoyable work , I was still left with the feeling that the book could have been so much more. As with some other Dick books that I have recently read, this one cries out to be pages or so longer, or to have a sequel added on to it.

Heck, I could've used another novel just featuring Lord Running Clam himself! Still, what the author HAS given us is a significant achievement, and yet another feather in his already crowded cap. Mar 01, M. Instead, my complaint is about the writing: And I blame this on Harper Voyager - but holy hell are there a lot of typos throughout!

That said, the Ganymeadean slime mold is excellent — a memorable character who is a lot of fun to visualize, especially in the scenes in the apt on Terra. Feb 25, P. Like Spinning Plates - Radiohead.

I am fascinated by his writing though and by the fact that he was somewhat of an outlier in the early Sci Fi world. I have read that he became extra strange at some point, some say insane, and I want to spot when or how that happened.

Most of all I like how he embraces absurdity since life is indeed absurd. It had been a dumping ground for psychotics some generations ago but they now rule the moon, having been liberated from the mental wards. The differently diagnosed psychotics band together in various conclaves though they have a Supreme Council and agree on one thing: There are the paranoid Pares, the manic Mans, the depressive Deps, the schizophrenic Heebs, and so on.

Mary and Chuck are on the verge of divorce and therefore on opposing sides when they reach the moon. Then there is the famous TV comedian Bunny Hentman, who has secret monetary connections on Alphane and is looking to grow his audience. This story starts crazy and ends just a little less crazy, which may be the hope factor in the tale. The other day a friend of mine said she does not like science fiction because it isn't real. I told her if you read science fiction from 60 or so years ago, you notice that a lot of it is real now.

Clans of the Alphane Moon turned out to be pretty thought provoking in these days where crazies and criminals appear to be running our government and where we who have been reduced to constant anxiety must somehow band together to save our country, maybe even the world. Jun 24, James rated it it was ok. Meanwhile, trouble is brewing on Alpha III M2, a lunar insane asylum turned semi-independent colony, organized around a clan system where membership is based on type of psychiatric disorder—there are the manics, paranoids, hebephrenics, and so on.

When I first read this as a teenager, I was totally engrossed in it and captivated by the idea of the clans, and it still is kind of engrossing and captivating in an artifactual collector-ish kind of way… and PKD scholar Umberto Rossi sees Clans as part of a series with Martian Time Slip and Dr.

Bloodmoney that have some interesting common properties, so maybe it benefits from being read immediately alongside those two better novels. Still, I think this one is best left to completists, or at least seasoned Dickheads. Jul 02, Nate Hanson rated it did not like it. It has all the deficits I've come to expect: The plot skeleton held promise, but I couldn't sustain my optimism past hal As much as I love PKD's writing, I suffered through this one. The plot skeleton held promise, but I couldn't sustain my optimism past halfway through, where many of the best parts were ditched in favor of trivial conventions.

I'll still keep reading his stuff. Bilim kurgu sevenler deneyebilir. Bu arada ilk defa bir Philip K. Dec 11, Charles Dee Mitchell rated it liked it Shelves: PKD spent a great deal of time in and out of psychiatrists' offices. He had bouts of agoraphobia from the time he was a teenager and went through several spells of clinical depression. He knew the psychiatric lingo and at times used it as rigorously in his personal relationships as he did in his books. Alpha III M2 is one of the purest creations of his experiences with mental health professionals. The moon was one giant hospital treating all known forms of mental derangement.

The fact that these break down to only a half dozen or so reflects the mid-sixties when the novel was written. The DSM had not yet expanded to include everything from psychosis to social anxiety disorder shyness. Earth is finally sending ships to check up on how things are going. Meanwhile back on earth, Chuck Rittersdorf has been tossed out by his wife, a successful marriage counselor, and now lives in a rundown conapt that sounds a little bit like the first apartment I had in college.

He survives on the small salary he makes programming simulacra for CIA propaganda missions. His best new friend is a Ganymedean slime mold named Lord Running Clam. PKD said later in his career that he realized his writing technique involved starting multiple plots and then seeing how he could bring them together. I think this is usually referred to as "making it up as you go along. Bunny Hentzman, one of PKD's frequent world-renowned entertainers that exercise a bizarre control over Earth's culture, hires Chuck at a terrific salary, but counter-intelligence operations within the CIA and the Hentzman organization make Chuck a hunted man.

As in a French farce or a Preston Sturges comedy, everyone ends in the same place, Alpha III M2, either shooting it out with laser pistols or making desperate diplomatic moves to keep Earth and Alpha out of a war and the main characters out of prison. A strangely touching and revealing moment comes when Chuck, having agreed to another battery of psychological testing, has these thoughts which sound straight from the heart of PKD: What do I do then? He did not belong in any of the settlements here on Alpha III M2; here he was a loner, an outcast, accompanied by no one even remotely resembling him.

But then again, his is also improving his knack for toss away nuttiness. Here's the opening to Chapter 8: When, late that night, Chuck Rittersdorf wearily returned to his rundown conapt in Marin County, California, he was stopped in the hall by the yellow Ganymedean slime mold. This, at three a. It was too much. What a wonderful universe! Well, really its quite horrific, but anyway I've not read that much Dick, but this was an excellent concoction even by his standards.

It has all the elements you would expect: The only thing I didn't like was the ending. The more interesting part of the story takes place on a moon orbiting an al What a wonderful universe! The more interesting part of the story takes place on a moon orbiting an alien inhabited world in the Alpha Centauri system. Originally there was a colony of mental patients on this moon, but somehow that operation fell apart and the mental patients inherited the moon.

Each clan corresponds to a different mental disorder for example manics, depressives, skitzos of different sorts, etc. They actually seem to have developed a modicum of civilization and stability, when the Terrans decide to reclaim the colony and re-hospitalize all its inhabitants. Anti-psychiatric, Szaszian overtones are obvious and I love it. The romance felt artificially manufactured - Eelyn and Fiske had no chemistry together and there was no buildup to their relationship.

Personally, I think it would have worked better if they had a platonic, rather than a romantic, relationship. The combination of bland writing and lack of complex characterisation and worldbuilding resulted in a shallow, unspectacular read. View all 35 comments. Dec 20, Sh3lly grumpybookgrrrl rated it really liked it Shelves: Review also found at: Thank you Netgalley and publisher for the eARC to read and review! Sky in the Deep is not released until April 24, , so this will definitely be a spoiler-free review. Eelyn is seventeen and a warrior in the Aska clan. During a battle against an enemy Riki clan, Eelyn discovers her brother, Iri, thought dead, is actually still alive and fighting against her clan on the battle field.

From the blurb here: Essentially, this is a story about how everyone is similar and the hate and prejudices you hold are against people who underneath their differences, are just like you — with families, hobbies, hopes, fears, etc. I will admit, this book did not hook me until about halfway through. But, it ended up being emotional and Eelyn and the other characters finally cracked through my shriveled bitter heart. Eelyn was hard to like at first. But thankfully, just as my heart thawed, so did hers. This is Young Adult, but there is violence it is a Viking culture after all. I think people will enjoy this story.

So check it out on April 24th! This is kind of reminding me of And I Darken which I dnf'd. Eelyn isn't an easy character to like. Quotes subject to change with final release; this is an eARC version. It doesn't make for easy reading. So far, this is fantasy only in that it is a re-imagined history of Vikings. I'm hoping it gets better. Read for the MacHalo Reading Challenge. View all 3 comments. Sep 20, Korrina OwlCrate rated it it was amazing. I took my time with it and really savoured every chapter. I adore these characters and this story. Mar 08, Bitchin' Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: I keep thinking on this book.

I may need to do a reread to satiate my need. The trials Eelyn faces, the love she finds, keeps coming back to me. The same thing happened with Strange the Dreamer, and rereading for a second time in the same year really helped nip the need. Here is my reminder that this book is amazing. I'm not the type of person who easily gets crushes on fictional characters. I know some people who fall in love with a person in each book, and that isn't how I roll. It takes a lot of mental and emotional connection for me to dub a character my book boyfriend--just like the word love, I don't use book boyfriend often.

Some of my book boyfriends I hold close to my heart: Fiske from this book. The man didn't steal my heart--he gave me his and promised forever. I'm going to need to save that line for my future book, because WOW. It has been two months since I read Sky in the Deep and I am still swooning, pining, wanting him for my own.

Eelyn, I trust you to treat my man right. Does anyone here want to fangirl with me for a bit? Please read my review below and leave me a comment. I want to know what some of your favorite moments are, what aspects really get you. One aspect that I forgot to mention in my review below is how family is defined.

It is a concept that evolves as the book progresses and Eelyn changes, and it isn't limited to only those connected by blood. Family is more about who you welcome into your life than it is about those who birthed and raised you. Blood may be thicker than water, but choosing to have someone in your life for what they add to it is so much more powerful and significant.

Sky in the Deep does an amazing job at exploring what makes a family and the powers at work within those relationships. Adrienne Young's debut novel Sky in the Deep is one of my favorite books of this year. She captures the Viking life so well that I daresay she must be a Viking shield maiden reincarnated. The world-building is clear, the writing style harkens to everything I love about Medieval European storytelling, and her characters are both staunch in their mental and physical strength AND extraordinarily vulnerable in their beliefs.

It is a book overflowing with complexities that I enjoyed exploring. I do want to say early on that this book may not be for you if you aren't into constant action, gore, or fast pacing. From the start you are dropped into a battle between the Aska and Riki, clans that have been enemies for as long as can be remembered. For both peoples, their lives are motivated by survival and hate of the other group. Five years before the opening battle scene, Eelyn lost her brother during one of the clashes. From that point on--very quickly, since the story just zooms on--everything that Eelyn had known comes into question.

How is he alive? Why is he with them? What has been going on for the past five years? How could he choose to be with them and not come home to family? So on and so on. Note on the pacing: Sky in the Deep is fast paced and the action is constant. Though vastly different in terms of genre and story, they are like each other in the movement of the story. If you like the feel of the persistent action and rapid flow, I suggest giving this book a go.

I wasn't sure I would be into the book due to these reasons, but I ended up swept away and there for the long haul. I am glad I did. Sky in the Deep is one of my favorite books of Eelyn, our protagonist, goes through identity crises and struggles the balancing of her identity. In the beginning she is firmly rooted in knowing herself and where she stands in the world.

Discovering her brother lives starts the crumbling of her certainty, and through the events that follow she understands that the world is not as black and white as "Aska good, Riki bad. Also, I can't really dig into explaining this due to spoilers, but this books brings a whole new meaning to "The enemy of my enemy is my friend. As for another favorite part of Sky in the Deep that I loved, enter the romance. The slow burn love that builds between Eelyn and a mystery man is so gosh darn good.

Eelyn's man, in particular, is especially appealing, because he had the same identity challenges and connects with her on even deeper levels thanks to their kindred enlightenment. But another reason I was excitedly squirming was the intensity of their romance's slow burn. It is forbidden due to the prejudices instilled by each clan, yet as Eelyn realizes the injustice of that kind of thinking and the common ground between their peoples, it feels so right.

But even with them constantly reminding each other that they will protect their own no matter the circumstances, neither can resist the other or deny the sprout of love that has grown between them. Despite all odds, despite everything forbidden, despite the atrocities they must endure, they know they are fated for each other--even if it means working through difficult situations to be with each other.

And on that note where I am yet again breaking down from the purity of their love, recalling the tummy tingles I felt as their love manifested, I must leave you with my rating of 5 out of 5 bitchin' stars. I love this book so much. It has become a part of me. View all 6 comments.

Thank you to the publisher St. Wednesday Books and NetGallery for providing me with a ebook copy of this beautiful book! Quotes taken from the book are subjected to change with the official release. All opinions on are mine and mine alone. April 24th Call the coast guard, I am drowning my need to become a viking. Who can I call to train me in how to use an ax and where can I get about fifty of them? As a young something, I feel it would scare WrensReads Review: As a young something, I feel it would scare off all the wanna-be suitors if I carry around an ax with me at all times, don't you think?

Let's talk about my main girl Eelyn. What I love about this story is injuries are actually taken seriously and they aren't like brushed off. Also, these are actual people and and not super people who never get injured. Eelyn is injured from a previous battle in the beginning, so she is not at her best when a Riki another Viking clan corners her and is about to take her life. And then - beyond all odds - her supposedly five-years dead brother stops him and saves her life. Her father believes it is their god favoring her, but she believes different and is rewarded with her skepticism because he isn't dead - he just traded in his Aska armor for Riki.

When Eelyn fall captive to the Riki, she sees first hand why she is just now finding out about her brother's survival. Eelyn lives up to every expectations of a bad-ass. Instead of using a shield, she uses a ax in one hand and a sword in the other. Even though she is injured, she is willing and able to fight for her clan. What is different than the majority of the bad-ass girls of our written-generation is that she actually does have a heart and is compassionate.

But the Riki are the enemy, so why is her brother on their side of the battle field now? Against his own father and sister and kinsmen? You must read this book to see! The romance in this book is heart-wrenching. I won't spoil who it is and what happens, but I absolutely loved it. I mean, I always love those hate-to-love type of stories, and this possibly that.

It was slow and practical and the characters slowly came together and didn't feel forced. He looked at it, taking a small step toward me. He moved closer until I could feel his breath on the palm of my hand " Besides the romantic relations, the family and friend relations aren't pushed on you. They come very naturally and sweetly. Especially the strain between the siblings, Iri and Eelyn. They love each other but they are on opposite sides of the on-going fight between clans. There is a lot of fighting, some gore, and there is a type of assault that Eelyn goes through.

All things that I personally don't mind at all, but some readers might We all know how I need a little violence in my books. Overall, this story is about vikings and fighting for what's right.

Sky in the Deep

So I just went ahead, got it and dove right in. The first chapter opens with this massive action sequence, and if I tell you that I was here for i "They hated me like I hated them. The first chapter opens with this massive action sequence, and if I tell you that I was here for it. I love me some badass girls wielding axes and swords, and the viking influences made for such a refreshing, unique touch that presented itself very early on.

Still, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from the overall story arc, and I knew very little going into it besides the fact that the main character, Eelyn, would shockingly discover her brother to be alive - and fighting for the enemy. This happens very early on, and it immediately pulled me in, because not only was the entire previous fight super action-packed and hectic, but the emotional turmoil this discovery awakens in Eelyn was written so beautifully and made you feel for her right away. And all in all, this remained one of the biggest strengths of the novel up until the end: The emotions are conveyed extremely raw, real and heartbreaking.

This was probably what surprised me the most. This books is sad. Not in a "My eyes are liquifying and I can't see the words anymore"-type of way, but rather it hits you in subtle, yet very piercing blows every now and then. For example when the weight of the truth - that Eelyn's brother is not in fact dead and joined the rival clan - gets too heavy and makes Eelyn say things like this: The words were small but they were true.

It shows more internal struggles than it does external ones, which thankfully works out Pretty well because 1. I really liked Eelyn, whom you might consider your regular "I kill everyone"-heroine, but a bit softer around the edges 2. Halvard is my precious, small child and if any harm ever comes close to him I will murder both clans to the point of extinction. I don't want to give too much away, but I also enjoyed the conflict that weaves its way throughout the plot, namely how Eelyn, after spending quite some time with the enemy, that they might just be trapped in a vicious circle - family members getting killed, thirst for revenge, killing someone else's family in return… it didn't reinvent the wheel, but it was crafted with such careful wording that I couldn't help but approve.

Escaping Love (Koning Clan, #2) by Debra Smith

While Sky in the Deep certainly didn't hold back any emotions, it did, unexpectedly, not contain a lot of actions. Besides the first 20 pages and the final 40, it was rather… quiet. Which I didn't particularly mind, but at some point I couldn't help but feel like the plot was stuck and something was missing. It didn't bore me, but it also didn't fully captivate me throughout its pages, which I know other readers might have an even bigger problem with. In the end, Sky in the Deep is definitely story that lives off of its characters more than it does its action, which wasn't bad, but the latter and some more fantasy aspects, which I was expecting, were lacking in the long run, which surprised me quite a bit.

Nonetheless, a beautifully written debut, which, tone-wise, reminds me quite a bit of The Wrath and the Dawn , minus some of that purple-ness. So if you liked that, you might want to check this one out. View all 8 comments. May 10, Riley rated it really liked it. Nov 09, Candace Robinson rated it it was amazing.

And I really want viking hair as of now!! Review on my blog https: Aug 01, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: This was the kind of book that captivated me from page one. The fact that the book started out with a cool battle scene also made things interesting right from the start. But the real selling point here was the main character Eelyn. She was just so damn likeable and relate 4. She was just so damn likeable and relateable. I felt her pain so vividly and it took me by surprise how quickly I became emotionally invested in her well-being.

I loved her and felt for her and just wanted everything to work out for her. Another lovely thing about this was the enemies to lovers romance. It's time to be a big girl now. And big girls don't cry. It made me feel small. Weak, like the early winter grass beneath our boots. The heat of a tear slowly trailed down the side of my face. The tears stung in the cold. I brushed a tear from my cheek. I stopped trying to hold back the tears that were waiting to fall.

I climbed the ladder and went to my cot, tears filling my eyes until I could barely see. My lips quivered, fresh tears springing to my eyes A sob broke from my chest I pushed my face into the wet blanket, sobbing. I could feel them now—those same tears that had fallen down my face as a young girl. I wept into his shoulder I nodded, the tears in my eyes reflecting his.

I cried with her. I gulped down the cry forcing its way up from my chest. I bit down on my lip until my eyes watered. Tears stung behind my eyes and I tried to blink them back I nodded, trying to suck in a breath past the tears coming up in my throat. I tallied at least 19 sessions of crying in this book, which is supposedly about a badass, Viking heroine. For someone who had killed around 7 people when she was 11 or 12, she sure did know how to use her tear ducts.

I know that there can be strength or bravery in showing vulnerability, but Eelyn went over the top! She kept on crying to the point that it almost made me cry in frustration! To make things worse, I just couldn't tolerate the romance because I don't care if Fiske is actually a good guy with a kind family; he shot an arrow into Eelyn's shoulder, overpowered her, and then brought him to his clan against her will. If you think that it's ironic for me to use a GIF of Emma Watson, just know that in the film, Belle asserted her agency by choosing to take her father's place as the Beast's prisoner.

Moreover, there wasn't any violence between Belle and the Beast. I guess reading it was a quite refreshing. Also, I must say that the fighting scenes were fast-paced and realistically brutal? Nonetheless, I really didn't have a pleasant experience with Sky in the Deep. Unfortunately, it turned out to be an overhyped book that I could add to my What the Heck bookshelf. View all 12 comments. When I first started it, I was very, very, very hesitant. I love Vikings, I love anything related to Vikings and Scandinavian history. So, I had extremely highly expectations that made me feel like I was going to be disappointed when I finished it.

But boy was I wrong. I figured that out within the first 10 pages. That first fighting scene had me hooked, and there was no turning back fo me. It " 'Vegr yfir fjor. I can already tell this is going to be the book I shove in people's faces when they want a book recommendation. One of my favorite tropes it the enemies-to-lovers trope, and this book had it, and it was perfect.

And I loved Eelyn and Fiske together. I need more of them in my life. I think I found my new book boyfriend. I fucking loved him. He deserves the world. I also loved the other characters, which usually doesn't happen for me. Halvard was probably my favorite. He was so adorable and sweet and too pure for the world.

My only really small complaint was the lack of fighting scenes and the lack of Iri. There were fighting scenes, and they were amazing. But I do wish there were a few more even if they were small. This book also really focused on Eelyn and Fiske which I loved , but I wish Iri was in a little bit more. I wanted to see more interactions between Iri and Eelyn. But these are just small complaints that really don't bother me much This has to be one of the best books I've read this year. I saw on Adrienne Young's author page that there's going to be a companion novel which I almost cried because I don't have to say good-bye to these characters.

There is going to be more of this world and I'm so happy. This is definitely a book worth reading. And I'm honestly going to be obsessing over this book for the rest of my days. Please don't disappoint me. A million stars to all the feels, tension, love, hate, and Viking badassery that this story was. I was sold on this book when I saw the cover and read the synopsis, but then I started this and knew I had just come across one of my favorite reads of This book will suck you in right from the start.

My first status update on this book was, "My heart is already pounding from one chapter. You won't be able to stop and you will be late to return back to work. Just take my word for it.

Clans of the Alphane Moon

Anyway, this book is about Eelyn, a viking warrior, who is a part of the Aska clan. Every five years the Aska and Riki clan go to battle. That kind of thing is all over the place in real life, so it would help the setting feel more believable. It can also provide excuses for both inter-clan and intra-clan conflict. I don't think players would mind having a few petty jackasses in their clan, so long as that was a thing that every clan had to deal with equally.

Yeah, selfish jerks are usually the ones starting fights to begin with. Get a greedy general who wants a castle or a plantation. In the grand scheme of things he is doing nothing truly evil but his neighbors are going to start getting really sick of it. I know the Dragonfly clan had two big battles start up because of a scorned lover. That's even better because it implies two clans having a small Alliance while another clan gets its feelings hurt. As far as I understand, it was the other way around. The flavor text was for "generic" Crab Clan Oni note that nothing in the flavor text specifies who is it talking about , and Yakamos story got this incorporated because well, bug turned into a feature.

This only matters if they have the same name Was there originally a Yakamo card that didn't have this? Or was Yakamo released after Crab Clan Oni? Or maybe they caught the misprint before running the press and decided to embrace it as fate rather than correct it, and added adjustments?

I'm not sure the Emperor who had to allow the Corrupt Spider to become a Great clan counts as a strong Emperor. Unless I've gotten Celestial and Emperor switched. Iweko, circa War of Dark Fire, was very much a respected central power all of the Clans treated with great deference.
