Jack McDevitt is at his best in ruins I first encountered him in The Engines of God the first of a series in which humans seem to constantly stumble across alien ruins created by the Monument Makers I went on to Eternity Road in which post apocalyptic humans look for the mysteries behind vast ruins Even his other series starting with A Talent for War and Polaris is about a tomb raider These novels have generally been intriguing from start to finish McDevitt is an expert at creating and keeping a sense of wonder and discovery and I ve bought all his booksI was excited therefore to find Cryptic which not only promised to be interesting but was good value for money It s paid offThe collection is broken into sections which aren t really explained despite a sizable foreword The stories aren t presented chronologically but the book reads as if they were The first section Unlikely Connections contains some of the weakest Frankly some of them are just not very good though they re not bad either Persevere past the first few and you ll reach some stronger collaborations with Michael Shara In section 2 Lost Treasure McDevitt starts to hit his stride including with a companion to Eternity RoadThe rest of the sections are at or slightly below that level which makes this a very satisfying read There are ancient ruins distant worlds and a sense of loneliness throughout There are very few actual aliens but there s a good mix of philosophy and light handed theological speculation There are uite a lot of historical references much so than in McDevitt s novels It s never too dense though I m sure it adds to the story for those who like it but it didn t get in the way for those of us who don tAside from the weak opening section the only negative her is also a positive This is a lot of McDevitt In terms of value you re unlikely to do better this is a boatload of stories for a pretty low price But I d advise reading some taking a break coming back etc There s a certain sameness that pervades the stories making them a touch predictable at least in terms of their resolution and emotional impact Spaced apart it s easier to see them for the mostly excellent stories they areAll in all a substantial collection of very good stories by an excellent writer

A wondrous collection of stories from a master storyteller These shorter tales give the reader a taste of what reading McDevitt in the longer form will be like stories that invoke a sense of wonder and are sometimes wistfully and achingly evocative of people and things lost to time or yet to be discovered McDevitt s narrative characters are often almost completely unremarkable if not for the company they keep and the events they witness When they do get involved it feels like we are right there with them and we feel the emotional philosophical and yes spiritual gut punches that the characters themselves feel
