Description

Coyote marks a dramatic new turn in the career of Allen Steele, Hugo Award-winning author of Chronospace. Epic in scope, passionate in its conviction, and set against a backdrop of plausible events, it tells the brilliant story of Earth’s first interstellar colonists—and the mysterious planet that becomes their home…

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 21, 2002 – At first, this novel from Hugo winner Steele looks like a fairly conventional tale of high-tech intrigue in this case, rebels against a right-wing American dictatorship plot to steal the prototype interstellar spaceship built to immortalize the government's ideology by planting a colony of fanatics on another star's planet. However, once the freedom seekers arrive on the new world, Coyote, things get a lot more interesting. Coyote is habitable but alien, full of flora and fauna that upset the colonists' easy preconceptions. The young people, in particular, have to find their identities in a dangerous but wonderful environment; their discovery of what they can do individually as well as what they owe to the group nicely illustrates the name the starship's captain, R.E. Lee, has given their settlement: Liberty. That Steele's novel has been stitched together out of a series of short stories has advantages and disadvantages. The jumping around can be repetitious, but it also lets readers see the same events from different angles. By the same token, the narrative doesn't stay with individual characters, especially adults, long enough for the reader to get to know them, but it does give a panorama of the developing community. By the end, when an especially big challenge appears, the colonists are ready to face it confidently. The discovery of a new world is one of SF's most potent themes, and Steele handles it well.

Customer Reviews

Great book

I was assigned this read in my Science Fiction class in college and fell in love with the series. It is a must read!

Asimov, Clarke, Heinlein...

And now, Allan Steele.

'Coyote' is right up there with the finest SF novels I've read. Steele weaves a great yarn here, a bit like Heinlein's Time Enough For love, with the interstellar scope of Clarke's 2001 novels.

Eloquently written, spot-on in the arena of hard science, yet shock-full of humanity. I love this novel. It's truly up there with the best in the genre.

Earl Grey, 2010

Well written, fast paced and enjoyable.

Just enough future science to make this a science fiction novel but mostly just solid human drama and adventure.
