Postby bookfide » Tue Sep 26, 2006 5:10 pm

Hello, I'm new to books, are there any other books to read before Polaris. I went to his website and looked all around, but couldn't find anything, but I did see some orders of some books, but couldn't confirm it. Can anyone confirm it for me, thanks.

I hav not even heard of it. What is it about?
I am the poet of the body and I am the poet of the Soul. The pleasures of heaven are with me and the pains of hell are with me. The first I graft and increase upon myself, the latter I translate into a new tongue.

It looks as if Polaris is a kind of sequel to A Talent for War.

From Publishers Weekly
This SF mystery's smooth and exciting surface makes it difficult to appreciate how exceptionally good it is at combining action and ideas. After a string of well-developed space operas, McDevitt returns to the lead characters of his second novel, A Talent for War (1988):

Its about a ship that was lost and found later without the crew on it, and there are some artifacts are on it, and try to figure out what happened.
Bmat, that's what I thought it might be but wasn't for sure. Well, thanks for your help.

You are welcome. I like some of McDevitt's writing, but at least one of his novels didn't catch my interest. - Infinity Beach.
