"Than A Fully Formed Story "a fully formed story Fiction and Fantasy Grand Master Poul Anderson s writing career lasted from the 1940s through is death in 2001 and I started reading Guide de l'employeur culturel him in my teens Alwayse was known not so much for scientifictechnological complexity or literary prowess as for the telling of engaging adventures Sadly Genesis one of is last novels in my opinion founders in that regard It was awarded the 2001 John Campbell Award perhaps as career recognition than on the merits of itselfThe novel is divided into two parts Part One is a disjointed narrative that skips across millions
