Read full description of the books:
To the credit of its title, "Galactic Exploration" has a predominately essayistic flair, one of intelligent speculation and discovery, perhaps with philosophical repercussions. It is comprised of 4 novellas, that explore complementary facets of humanity's search for intelligent alien species, and contribute to create a wide-scale mosaic of humanity's future. Even though I sometimes longed for a faster progression of events, the worldbuilding was fascinating to read, marked by scientific plausibility and care for detail, and ultimately thought provoking and memorable.
In hindsight, each novella is a distinct reflection of the main theme, that of humanity reaching out to other intelligences through the immensity of space.
"Serengeti" is the most contemplative of the four, setting the reader up for the vastness awaiting us "out there". It conveys a deep seated sense of the immensity of space and the insignificance of man, but it's also decidedly marked by hope and curiosity, and a tireless reach for contact.
"Trixie And Me" brings an instinctual sense of urgency and drive for survival, which are aptly woven into the narrative. The heavy details effectively contribute to the atmosphere and the sense of claustrophobia the characters feel. A very gripping story!
"Savannah" is perhaps the most intimate of the bunch, and offers a singular and personal perspective on one of the main scientific premises used throughout the book.
In "War", the descriptions are heavily mixed into the action, but still captivating and plausible. The daring moves and commendable attitudes displayed by all parties involved in the conflict make this last novella a very thought provoking read, though I wish the ending would have been explored more intently.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in speculative fiction, and unafraid to extrapolate on the limitations and dangers we face when we speak of venturing into space. It was a great read, and I am definitely hooked to follow Peter Cawdron's works.
