Gods of Sagittarius
The Gods of Sagittarius by Eric Flint and Mike Resnick blends classic sci-fi with Lovecraftian horror in a light adventure filled with humor, gore, and more.
Russ Tabor’s newest job is protecting Lord Shenoy as he searches out clues for a race of ancient aliens. The Old Ones once ruled the galaxy with magic but have disappeared millennia ago. On a similar journey, a warrior-priest named Occo returns home to discover everyone and everything she held dear wiped out. Occo, Russ, and Lord Shenoy soon cross paths and embark on a strange and wonderful journey to find the Old Ones at any cost.
The Gods of Sagittarius doesn’t take itself seriously, so don’t get too wrapped up in deciphering the strange terms and alien culture. The writing is fast-paced and mostly dialogue-based, allowing for some witty humor and head-shaking cultural confusions between the disparate alien races. It’s a fun read, but you’ll have to let some issues slide past, like strange scientific terms, unusual concepts that aren’t clarified, and unnecessary crude humor. Don’t go into the book expecting much and you’ll have a good time.
