Helliconia Summer the second volume in the Helliconia trilogy is superb old school science fiction The novel is superior to Helliconia Spring 1982 partly because the world it depicts is far richer in summer than it was in its emergent state in spring The novel also contains much detail about humanity s observational satellite Avernus in orbit around the planet as well as Helliconia s stellar and biological history The novel s world building is splendidly detailed fascinating and ultimately entirely satisfying During summer the planet s human like life forms are dominant and their civilization is akin to that of Earth s late middle ages The planet s other intelligent inhabitants the Phagors are much passive during summer surviving and biding their time until winter returns The Phagors are curiously compelling aliens despite being mostly impassive and enigmatic Although Phagor culture is less sophisticated than that of the humans they make them seem childish and vain in comparisonPart of what makes Helliconia Summer so satisfying is the weave of complex multiple plot strands that also feature well rounded and believable characters The characters are generally dynamic and relatably human in both their motivations and flaws I couldn t help but get caught up in the characters individual stories as they struggled to cope with the planet s continual cultural and geographical shifts Like the first novel there are long sections detailing particular narrative threads however there is much dynamism to the narrative in general making it far compelling than the first novel Despite being nearly 600 pages in length I really did not want Helliconia Summer to end it was thoroughly enjoyable and I couldn t help but wonder why it has never been made into a series akin to something like Game of Thrones it certainly has the complexity and scope to satisfy most modern viewers even those who failed to understand Game of Thrones denouement

In a strange way it feels like the eually well written Helliconia Spring was but the prolog to Helliconia Summer a well crafted huge canvass story of politics warfare and religion on this now well established earth like planet some one thousand lightyears from the one we call homeOnce Mr Aldiss had created and set the Helliconia stage during its long Spring he now proceeds during its longer Summer with a detailed and very absorbing tale of warring kingdoms blind religious and powerful faiths political scheming and a search for historical truth as always unwelcome amongst believers While in some aspects this plot could have been set in any environment Helliconia provides a multi layered backdrop that tends to intensify the story s movementIt is a book to sink into and be engulfed by and to enjoy It was recognized as a masterpiece on its publication and it has certainly stood the test of the thirty five some years sinceAs an aside Mr Aldiss has an amazingly broad vocabulary and he uses it liberally keep a dictionary handy That said highly recommended

A city on Helliconia holds much in common with a late medieval European city as per this market scene depicted by 16th century Dutch artist Pieter Aertsen Helliconia Summer second volume in the trilogy Helliconia by British author Brian Aldiss is bookended by Helliconia Spring and Helliconia Winter Helliconia Summer follows Helliconia Spring chronologically and should definitely be read after one experiences Helliconia Spring The SF Masterworks edition of Helliconia is the way to go one key reason maps and detailed Appendices will prove extremely helpful as you negotiate this magnificent multifaceted planet Helliconia Summer features a detailed account of human society only logical since in scorching hundred degree summer heat humans flourish and that other language speaking species prime rival to humans the shaggy fur phagors will mostly hide in caves or in vast mountain caverns And that s human society as in kings and ueens generals and admirals priests and religion scholars and tradespeople weapons and warfare language writing and history Likewise Helliconia Summer highlights the planet s natural world in exuisite detail land formations seas coastal regions along with the entire range of flora and fauna from plants to seaweed from mammals and birds to reptiles fish insects and microorganisms Hundreds of issues of National Geographic could be devoted to Helliconia enough material to keep teams of animal biologists botanists biochemists geographers and ecologists busy for a lifetimeAs readers we re treated to the planet s grand expanse as we follow the travels and travails of many characters all these women and men fully developed by master storyteller Brian Aldiss to name several ueen king king s son king s chancellor king s general ship captain The novel s multiple plot lines crisscross and overlap in intriguing ways providing insight into the entire social and cultural web of those living in the lands of HelliconiaHowever for me the most fascinating aspect of Helliconia Summer is something new something absent in Helliconia Spring one of our kind an Earthling travels to the surface of Helliconia and interacts with the planet s inhabitantsAnd there he is Billy Xiao Pin age 20 fresh from starship Avernus Brian Aldiss provides the background many centuries prior to the birth of Billy Planet Earth sent the Avernus to orbit Helliconia in order to gather and transmit information on all aspects of the planet as well as other members of its solar system including smaller sun Batalix and larger sun FreyerBilly is not the first Earthling to visit Helliconia We learn a lottery has been in place for generations a lottery held every ten years within the great Helliconia summer The winner gets to travel via capsule down to the planet s surface But and this is a big but winning the lottery is a mixed blessing since humans from Earth lack the necessary immune system to withstand Helliconia microbes in other words for those on Avernus the Helliconian adventure amounts to a death sentence the winner dying within weeks of their arrival on the planetNo matter for Billy our strapping young man is a red blooded adventurer Billy even sends the android that accompanied him to Helliconia to serve as additional protection back to the Avernus in the capsule Billy prefers to handle solo whatever comes his way That s the spirit BillyAs anyone might imagine Billy enjoys a string of intriguing conversations and dealing with the Helliconians men women even phagors Well some of those interactions prove less than enjoyable What exactly transpires is for Brian Aldiss to chronicle I ll segue to a trio of other fascinating aspects of this astonishing novel Here goes Spellbound Spectators Those on the Avernus all 6000 men and women follow Billy s every move on Helliconia Billy s adventures are also big news back on Earth To the people of Earth Helliconian events were news The signals were received first of all on Charon on the extreme fringes of the solar system There again they were analyzed classified stored transmitted The most popular transmission went to Earth via the Eductainment Channel which carried various continuous dramas from the binary system Other Intelligent Species The king s son a lad by the name of Robayday runs away from court and joins a tribe of nomadic Madis These human like peoples never achieved full human consciousness they have little understanding of time they sing rather than speak their uniue language Madis spend their entire lifecycle on the move back and forth across the lands of Helliconia Occasionally humans will mate with a Madi to produce a child possessing a cross of humanmadi ualities ueen of ueens ueen MyrdemInggala is in uniue communication via telepathy with dolphins When ships out at sea are planning an invasion of her lands dolphins come to her rescue A line of dolphins streamed from the bay and could be seen heading beyond the Good Hope as if summoned by something there The sea convulsed You bet it convulsed The dolphins summoned two creatures from the deep having the appearance of enormous sea dragons The dragons set the sea rocking around the ship prompting the captain to abandon his attack Good thinking mate Don t lose out Journey to Helliconia with Brian Aldiss So worth a reader s time Eventually Billy and Abath appeared holding hands Billy s face was only just wide enough to accommodate his grin They sat down at the table without speaking Billy delights in a round of lovemaking with fetching Abath This heartfelt encounter underscores two significant similarities between humans on Earth and humans on Helliconia the capacity to behold great beauty in another person and also the emotional power to feel deep love for anotherBritish author Brian Aldiss 1925 2017
