レビュー

A debut sci-fi epic explores a colonial world striving for independence from its master planet. This long and sometimes surreal tale is set on a planet informally referred to by its inhabitants as "Here-Born, thereby differentiating it from their species home world of Earth, which they call "Earth-Born" or EB. The inhabitants of Here-Born were originally colonists sent from distant Earth; they crash-landed on Here-Born and began the slow, torturous process of adapting to a world with a higher gravity than Earth and no water, a blasted desert realm whose "face is scarred by one-third a sea of rock and awash in two-thirds an ocean of sand-and nothing else. Despite these forbidding conditions, the Here-Born colonists flourished, adapting to the gravity and developing localized telepathy, a resistance to the planet's extremes of heat and cold, and a prosperous trade in secondhand body-part replacements, a cultural innovation that never fails to revolt tourists from Earth-Born. "One trader in such body parts is the title character, who's also involved in a Here-Born campaign to throw off the imperial shackles of Earth-Born; as Once-Other rails at one tourist, Here-Born natives hate old Earth's "underhandedness, your Earth-Born politics, your oppressive taxes, your laws, and your damn ignorant educational system. And the last item-education-is unexpectedly important; "Never before," Once-Other muses, "had any of us imagined how dangerous a weapon against young minds an education system could become. This broader setting-freedom fighters trying to resist and subvert their political overlords-gives Nysschens ample opportunity to expound on all manner of political topics, with Once-Other at one point musing, "Can anyone believe that over on EB you pay higher taxes the more productive you are? That is how they reward success-by penalizing it?" The narrative often feels overlong and the characters, underdeveloped; the actual science in this sci-fi novel won't have anybody confusing it with Dune. But the sociological observations that are obviously Nysschens' main concern are indeed consistently intriguing. A revolt on a distant planet holds a mirror up to Earth in this erratically effective novel." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Best Political SciFi yet. February 15, 2016 -- Once Other is an amazingly complex and intriguing caricature of the founding principles of our Republic set in the distant future. It seductively explores the opposite evolutionary ends of the spectrum for our Republic, and their battle for survival or dominance. Spinning a long and twisted web you can't escape from until the last word." --AMAZON. "A story that will draw you in! January 26, 2016 -- As others have said, this is a blend of science fiction, adventure, politics & morality. While it took me a while to catch on to the authors style, the concepts on the structure of a truly free society are pearls worth the work to obtain. Lawrence Nysschens brings you to a world of unimaginable hardship, yet the inhabitants thrive, all the while living with a system of governance that actually works to advance a individuals personal goals. I really enjoyed it & look forward to his next effort!" --AMAZON "Live by Neatness Alone!" will become my new motto. December 18, 2015 -- Once-Other is also the name of the main character, a man of integrity. I liked that the author was able to transport me to that world and interest me in Once-Other's fate. The character became real and beloved. There are two planets, Here-born and Earth-born with similar humanoids but different cultures. One culture values individuality and freedom while the other does not. The author takes through a couple of adventures and slowly unravels how the two cultures developed. I liked their weapon of mass destruction, so simple, yet effective." --AMAZON "A debut sci-fi epic explores a colonial world striving for independence from its master planet.
