Publisher's Summary

The chartered Zarathustra Company had it all their way. Their charter was for a Class III uninhabited planet, which Zarathustra was, and it meant they owned the planet lock stock and barrel. They exploited it, developed it and reaped the huge profits from it without interference from the Colonial Government. Then Jack Holloway, a sunstone prospector, appeared on the scene with his family of Fuzzies and the passionate conviction that they were not cute animals but little people.


Audible Editor Reviews

This novel is a nostalgic classic from the 1960s. The extra-terrestrial environment in which it occurs is, like the Earth itself, a place that is colonized and exploited. Jack Holloway enters planet Zarathustra with his wards the Fuzzies, trying to secure them a home. The Fuzzies are a good metaphor for all the displaced people and animals on Earth. This vintage novel has depth; it raises questions of how sentience can be measured, and what it means to have a place in the world. Narrator Peter Ganim faithfully recites the groovy sci-fic verbiage of the book, but his sincere delivery make the listener bypass the quaint wonkiness and focus on the still-relevant questions found here. A good listen for those interested in early works of sci-fi.
