Publisher's Summary

At last - the ultimate book in the renowned Heechee Saga!
Advanced Heechee technology had enabled Robinette Broadhead to live after death as a machine-stored personality, enjoying his life by flitting along the wires from party to party with a host of other machine-people. But suddenly his decadent existence ends when an all-powerful alien race intent on the utter destruction of all intelligent life reappears after eons of silence, and threatens the lives of all heechee and humans. Even Robin, virtually immortal and with unlimited access to millennia of accumulated data, cannot discover how to stop these aliens. It began to seem that only a face to face meeting could determine the future of the entire universe....

Worst Book In Series

What did you like best about The Annals of the Heechee? What did you like least?

I liked the end the best. This was a very disappointing ending to an otherwise excellent saga.

Would you be willing to try another book from Frederik Pohl? Why or why not?

I would definitely try another Pohl book as I enjoyed most of the Gateway/Heechee books very much.

What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Oliver Wyman did an excellent job of making lightweight material entertaining.

Do you think The Annals of the Heechee needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I think it needs a story.

Any additional comments?

If you have been following this saga then you will need to get this book just to find out what becomes of the characters. However, it is without doubt the weakest link in the Gateway/Hechee chain.
