Title: Firehand

Series: Time Traders

Author: Andre Norton, P.M. Griffin

Rating: 3 of 5 Battle Axes

Genre: SFF

Pages: 282





Ross Murdock and Co head to a world that in the future opposes the Big Brains and win. The Big Brains burn the world in the past and Ross must prevent that from happening, all the while hiding Earth’s involvement.

And he gets involved with some chick.


My Thoughts:

This was a disappointment. Who ever P.M. Griffin is, this collaboration did not work for me, at all.

This was a bloody romance. I don’t have a problem with those, but I do when it is completely different from the previous FOUR books in the series. I enjoyed this as a standalone story, but not as a part of the Time Traders.

I don’t know if I want to read any more. I believe the rest of the Time Traders are collaborations as well and this one just turned me right off.

  1. I liked this one. I have not yet had the chance to read the rest of the Time Traders series, but even so, Forehand struck me as a standalone novel in the series.

    P. M. Griffin does a better job with the Witch World series than sci-fi, I think. Have you tried Andre Norton’s Storms of Victory and Flight of Vengeance stories? They contain two short stories per novel. Andre did the first story in Storms of Victory while P. M. Griffin wrote the next one, and the second story in Flight of Vengeance. If you want some more context on the Falconers of the Witch World, these stories are the places to get it!
