This Is Jeter S First Published Novel An Early Cyberpunk Work, Seeklight Is The Story Of A Quest For Identity By Daenek, Scion Of An Assassinated Thane, Or Clan Leader The Action Occurs During Some Future Time On An Earth Like Seed Planet, To Which Human Genetic Material, Or Seed, Was Transported While Shepherded And Nurtured By Protective RobotsCover Art Kelly Freas I was supposed to be reading a different Jeter book for a group read, but ended up reading this instead I bought a lot of signed Jeter paperbacks on EBay last year, so I have quite a few to read This was excellent for a first novel It definitely kept my interest There was a great twist at the end I wasn t expecting My one complaint is the minor info dump near the end of the book I suspect it was there to shorten the book to keep it within a manageable length for Laser Books I think my favorite part of the book was the creepy mechanical priests who managed the colony Some go mad and you can never know what they might do Definitely a nod to PKD, though I m not sure if Jeter was friends with him this early on My main interest in Jeter s work came out of his friendship with Philip K Dick It s kind of cool his early books came out as paperback originals just like PKD s and Laser is a pretty oddball publisher for his first two I m thinking I may do a Jeter marathon and move on to his other Laser novel. Not as good as this author s later work, but worth reading.Kind of a hero s journey story It felt like he didn t quite know how to end it.I think I might have read this 35 or 40 years ago A fewelements seemed familiar, but for the most part it s as thoughI read it for the first time this week.
