The Empire may still exist, at least it does on the fortress orbiting the planet, where the bulk ofthe population toils to preserve the privileges of the few administrators. Cracks are appearing in the administration, and we are left with a few rebels who are working to overthrow the system. I read this paperback in 1963, though it was published in 1951.

I think I'll be an outlier on this book.

The backdrop was interesting, the characters varied and extreme, the plot interesting, and yet it didn't hang together for me at all.

The intro drew me in, then the book just stumbled along for many many pages, and when it finally got interesting, it ended.

The book was described by some as a traveler's tale - a Canterbury Tales sort of thing with aliens. That was what caught my fancy as well as the fact I had never read one of James Gunn's novels (except maybe The Listeners). I had rather low expectations and the book happily exceeded them. It starts a thousand years in the future with a group of assorted aliens just after a peace has been established after a galactic war. We begin at the edge of known space and head off to the unknown with pilgrims, and others, and they seem to be seeking transcendence. This is also an entertaining mystery in space, kind of a locked room, or spaceship...

I really enjoyed the journey and it was a quick and easy read. The ending is clever and leaves the reader with a sort of cliffhanger. Almost 4 stars
