    • Един по-зрял прочит на тази книга, любима от ученическите ми години, ми отвори нови прозорци към писателя ван Вогт. Формата тип мечове и звездолети е доста забавна и любопитно изпитание за всеки писател, който е решил да обясни рационално тази смесица между епохите.От самот [...]

    • It's only afterwards that I learn that the author apparently "borrowed" large sections ofI, Claudius to tell his story of a deformed genius worming around the power structure of a decadent and corrupt post-apocalyptic barbarian space empire. And here I was wondering why the first half to two-thirds were abnormally coherent for van Vogt.My goodness I loves myself some space barbarian stories. So deliciously ridiculous. Robert Cham Gilman / Alfred Coppel tackled it better withThe Rebel of Rhada, b [...]

    • This is the fourth time I have read Empire of the Atom -- not because it is any good, but because it so impressed me when I was a teenager that I find it to be a window into my own past. In fact, I wrote a blog about my experience.This is a strange book in which a post nuclear war society simultaneously has access to the power of the atom (which it worships as gods) and spaceships, yet uses bows, arrows, spears, and swords as its prime weapons.Also to be noted is that the first 60% or so of the [...]

    • Empire of the AtomThe Wizard of LinnI'll review these together - you really need to read both of them to get the full sense of what van Vogt created.Hail Lord Clane Linn - despised mutation from the long line of powerful Linn leaders. Hated, misunderstood, marginalized, and despised - can Clane become the "Pariah Messiah" needed to save humanity?There are many other examples of this type of character. Consider Elric (by Michael Moorcock) - weak albino, outcast, last of a mighty line, hated by hi [...]

    • This novel was as strange and confusing as I had expected it to be. I might have to read it over again to fully understand it completely but even so, I did enjoy it. The atmosphere and development of events kept my interest, though the odd mixture of low and hi-tech -the common use of spaceship while weapon used in war scenes are but swords and arrows, for example- was baffling. The plot is (according to James Blish and others) based on -or even a straight up rewrite of- Robert Graves' "Claudius [...]

    • A corker of a book in the best traditions of 1950s pulp science fiction. Much better than The Voyage of the Space Beagle, which is all over the place (losing one's controlling idea half way through a narrative is bane to an Aristotelian script writer like myself). In the 1960s, when I was a (small!) kid, Clifford D. Simack wrote an excellent episode of the original Star Trek in which the Roman Empire survived into the mid-20th Century on a parallel Earth. Then, in the 1990s, when I didn't have a [...]

    • First thing, I absolutely love old-school pulp Sci-Fi. Sometimes cynical, sometimes optimistic, frequently trite and juvenile; It almost always had a sense of wonder that was contageous. For me, that mostly went missing somewhere back in the sci-fi of the 70's and after. Probably around the time the sci-fi section in Walden's got invaded by elves, dragons and wizardsAs for Van Vogt; I once read in an essay by Isaac Asimov that Van Vogt "lost" many productive writing years to promoting Dianetics [...]

    • As always, van Vogt takes foreign thoughts, and paradigms and weaves an entire world unlike any the reader has likely experienced. The paradox of medieval fantasy and the atomic age is enchanting. I deeply wish that he had chosen to pursue this series. The end was sudden, and contrived. None of the themes created early on persisted. In the last 2 pages of the book a plot device is revealed for shameful convenience, the narrative wrapped up, and NONE of the major themes revisited. And like that, [...]

    • An interesting fix-up here which is loosely or partly based on Robert Graves’ ‘I, Claudius’, and has been assembled from five stories ("A Son Is Born" (May 1946), "Child of the Gods" (Aug 1946), "Hand of the Gods" (Dec 1946), "Home of the Gods" (April 1947) and “The Barbarian" (Dec 1947)), all originally published in Astounding. On a far future Earth a child, ‘Clane’ is born to Tania, the daughter of the Lord Leader of Earth. The child is malformed as a result of his mother’s expos [...]

    • This was brilliant! It was what people term today a "re-imagining" a term I hate but in this case it worked WONDERFULLY! This was Augustus, Livia, Claudius and Tiberius in a far future post apocalyptic world where people worship the atom gods who destroyed the earth 1000s of years previously. There are working spaceships and bows and arrows and swords. There are colonies on other planets. It is Rome in space. A couple reviews have said he was simply copying Robert Graves I Claudius, but then Gra [...]

    • I was looking for an old school Golden Age Sword and laser type of thing and I got it in this.Overall it was a more entertaining read than the last two or three modern science fiction novels I managed to slog through.For all its faults it was just what the doctor ordered.

    • OK only one star deserves an explanation. This book started out interestingly enough with the birth of a radiation induced mutant to a "royal" family. While the story was concerned with his attempts at normalcy and his family's reactions to him, I was enthralled. Then the story turned to war and intrigues and the undiluted deaths of various characters with practically no fanfare. I had a hard time figuring out who was doing what to whom and why. There was just enough about the mutant and his sci [...]

    • Vogt is arguably the best author ever.Insane quality plot world buildingese 2 novels would make awesome films, and I wish someone would write 3rd 4th + clane novelsczar one of the mos awesome characters of all time is clane.ar wars kinda bit this.d star trek is directly from vogt's voyage of pace beagle except beagle had each of 500 crew was different scientific specialist about it!nexialism!anywya back to the plotting of this novel was awesome!!vogt in 2 pages does what many authors do in 15and [...]

    • Opinions differ radically on A.E. van Vogt, but I am firmly in the camp of those who admire his work. The story is fascinating, and the political intrigue is rare in SF, at least that I've read. A classic.

    • I, Claudius imagined as early pulp sci-fi serial. Van Vogt got better in later books but this is worth a read if only to see how historically sophisticated early sci-to could be.

    • Ah, Nostalgia, Goddess of Tilted Memories. I blame her for the fact that I re-read Empire of the Atom about once a decade. As another (probably wiser) reviewer said, part of why I do so is to try to calibrate how my own perceptions have changed over the years. My first copy arrived in the mail as one of those cheesy Science Fiction Book Club hardcovers with deckle-edged paper back in '57. Loved it, mostly because I've always been a humongo fan of underdogs who can do cool sciency stuffd what cou [...]

    • Found this novel in its first hardcover edition at some used bookstore in East Rogers Park, Chicago. Recall reading it in my miserable studio apartment in the building on the corner of Morse and Ashland one evening, finishing it more quickly than expected, and wondering "what next?"What next was perhaps my first visit to the No Exit Cafe on Lunt by the Red Line elevated tracks since I had gone there with Cathy Harrer junior year in high school. Back in '78 it may have been the only cafe in the n [...]

    • This is definitely Sci-Fi as ideas and plot, not characterization. The Empire of the Atom takes place far, far in Earth's future. Something terrible happened in the past that is neither fully remembered or understood. The people of the age live with an odd blend of technology, they have spaceships and have colonized Mars, Venus and moons of Jupiter, but they still wage war with swords and arrows. The book charts the life of a disfigured boy, born to the leading family on Earth who begins to unde [...]

    • This was not what I was expecting, from what the blurb hints at. It was a very pleasant surprise and I enjoyed every moment of it. Based some unknown time in the future it depicts a human race that has survived an ancient atomic catastrophe and its rise to knew, but somewhat barbaric empire that is a mix of pre-industrial and post-space faring ages. The idea that a culture can build spaceships but can't build simple mechanical weapons is a bit of a stretch but outside that it is rather interesti [...]

    • Hoopla. It's been awhile since I read a "classic" SF. This one bears most of the traits: idea driven, mostly flat characters and plenty of thrills. In a book only 250 pages long Van Vogt fits in what a modern day writer would need at least a trilogy of books that were twice as long. The whole plot hinges on an absurdity, but SF readers have never been to critical of that. Nor am I, and once accepting the point of departure the reader just needs to hang on and enjoy the ride.I was recommended the [...]

    • Game of Thrones. In. Spaaaaaace!Light sci-fi, interesting (but not too detailed) court intrigue and a bleak future where humanity has lost most of its knowledge, but not the tools of the past.Ends a bit abruptly (thought maybe the audiobook was flawed), but now I see the novel is a combination of many stories, with the a sequel combining the rest. Will be picking it up for sure.Good narrator, but an old recording (sounded like he was sitting next to a fire place)

    • Tale of war and political intrigue set in a distant future of our solar system, which has been colonized and then reduced to barbarism by nuclear war.Reasonably well written and interesting to read, but doesn't really contain any revolutionary ideas. The plot element which concludes the story pops out of nowhere a few pages before the end of the book in a rather depressing case of deus ex machina.

    • I think of this book as an early Science Fiction version of A Game of ThronesGame of Thrones. Clane and Tyrion share a similar position in both books.I have more complete review on my blog: here

    • Troppo corto per potersi esprimere al meglio.[return]La storia è narrata in maniera piacevole e veloce; a volte troppo veloce; risultando quindi superficiale.
