The Desert of Stars is John Lumpkin’s second book a fairly close seuel to his freshman effort Through Struggle The Stars After I read and favorably reviewed Through Struggle I eagerly awaited Desert hoping it was as good as the original It isThis book is set in the year 2141 Humanity after having seen an asteroid smash into the Indian Ocean has decided to establish colonies in space Thanks to a Japanese scientist they have developed a means of faster than light travel and used it to establish a bewildering array of colonies on nearby star systems Some colonies are independent; most are controlled by an Earth nation or group of nations As we find out very early in The Desert of Stars a number stars that should have had habitable planets don’t thus creating the titular desert Since FTL travel reuires going from star to star this is a real problem and will put the brakes on the expansion of some colonial empires but not others A war breaks outLumpkin’s war is not however the mad dash affairs of Star Trek or Star Wars His spaceships obey the laws of physics taking weeks to cross a solar system There are no force fields no visible lasers and in general scientific accuracy is maintained This still results in a very entertaining book largely because Lumpkin’s characters are believable and he seems to understand both militaries and history Much of the story is driven by the friendships developed by these characters during this warIn Lumpkin’s previous book I dinged him for not including a number of nations such as India in the order of battle Here Lumpkin resolves that complaint making India and Russia two notable nations left out key parts of the plot Lumpkin also shows a keen awareness of the old saying that “nations have no permanent friends just permanent interests”In short as literature I found The Desert of Stars to be everything a reader of science fiction would want
