West of the Sun by Edgar Pangborn

West of the Sun

by Edgar Pangborn

"West of the Sun is exciting and professional and good SF through and through; but it is also calm and wise and wry, and it takes us away to a better world, where it leaves us.  Today, we need this."
John Clute

A spaceship crash-lands on the planet the crew names, Lucifer — Son of the Morning.  Full of hope and excitement, the six explorers encounter an alien world full of bat-winged monsters, painted witches, and armies of pygmy cannibals.  But for each threat, objects of great beauty await them, blue fireflies, red-green forest, vast mountains, and deep seas.  With ever-dwindling supplies, and a war in the making, these adventurers embark on one of the most fascinating journeys of survival in science fiction... somewhere West of the Sun.  Cover art by Rob Alexander.

Edgar Pangborn was awarded the third annual Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award at Torcon 3, the 2003 Worldcon in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Additional information may be found at the Locus web site.

"I read West of the Sun after learning that Pangborn was going to be awarded the Rediscovery Award this year.  I enjoyed its reflective qualities especially.  The characters became real to me, and I cared about what happened to them even though the war part went on a bit long for my taste.  I found the ending quietly hopeful in a way that I could resonate to.  There is a lot of love in Pangborn, along with a keen awareness of human stupidity.  Resonated with that, too!"

– Rosana Hart, daughter of Paul Linebarger (a.k.a. Cordwainer Smith)
